We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming…

…already in progress

 

remember that antsiness?

hopping one-footed

from impatience

to exasperation

 

the “BREAKING NEWS”

ticker-taped drama

interrupting

your favorite show

 

interminable

 

in childhoods’ eyes

worthless irrelevant

waste of time

impingement

on your levity

 

the voice of

Peanutted adults

“wah, wah wah, wah wah”ing

until the
FINALLY

stoically intoned

sweet release

 

the discovery

discombobulating

 

of plot twists

irretrievably lost

(the days before

instant perpetual

electronic gratification)

favorite characters

now played by

different actors

and you missed

the announcement

 

now imagine

 

instead of a show

that was your LIFE

 

running on

while you are gone

plots reversed

characters

mystappeared

and NO ONE

has a DVR

 

and tell me again

how incarceration

rehabilitates
