daytime tv

daytime tv
an epitaph for our times
murder she wrote
seventies hairstyles
wide lapelled jackets
checked in autumn colours

gardening programmes
cookery shows
abuse of abusive maladroits
in riotous chats
hourly news griefs
reciting youth murders
and house prices

in honour of our profound times

for those whose lives require not living
and those too infirm to struggle any more

soma for the home bound
lsd halucinations
for the cautious generation

alternative life
plastic substitutes
for the already mourning
