Very nice haiku, your wisdom is shown here with great words.
If I've interpreted it correctly, this chimes with my own current thinking. I've resolved not to spend time watching soaps and other TV pollutants.
Your wit and wisdom continue to entertain, amaze and instruct.
good one! i don't understand how peoplecan watch it anyway...
dave there's so much on television that creates or reinforces the lowest common denominator. i wish that if we have a medium that can reach large groups of people that it was used to elevate rather than denigrate. steven
No doubt there s much on TV that contravenes Health and Safety regulations. If Health and Safety won't act, maybe Dawkins' lawyers could look into the possibility of charging the producers with crimes against humanity?In case that thing with the Pope doesn't work out.
And here I thought it had to do with some news headline about soapmaking!
Then they'd better hire new script writers, Dave!
I grew up with 'radio soaps' ... fun listening, addictive too ~ but only 15 minutes in length. Long for those days at times. Everything on TV is a soap of one kind or another today.
I slap soap often,and it shoots across the roominto the Telly.
I wonder after 115 haiku whether you are beginning to dream them in your sleep too Dave. Whichever kind of soap you mean it is still a good one.
That must mean there'll be more kissing.
I agree with Helen. "Everything on TV is a soap of one kind or another today". That's why I seldom watch TV it only adds to my Health.
AllMany thanks again for all the comments. I was quite amused last night to see that in one soap they can still throw glasses at each other - obviously not as dangerous as slapping, though the slap-and-tickle still continues, I gather.Fun nily enough, the haiku has not pen etrated my sleep as yet!
