reality shows

everything is easier
though much of it is wrong
everything is faster now
though we wait twice as long

everyone is very smart
but none have learned to think
save those few who notice
that the system’s out of sync

so here comes honey boo boo
there goes the evening news
but for fashion, gossip
and some pundit’s pointed views 

and i, i wind my watch
to a sun, a moon, and stars
whose zenith, some day waning
knows no greater fate than ours
