This morning’s Living Poetry Prompt was “television”. Here’s what I wrote.
Why do they call it the boob tube?
Besides the obvious rhyming pair
there aren’t any naked boobs
at all. There’s plenty of jiggle
in bikinis or bras bared
for less than reasonable reasons
but I have to monitor pay cable
to see the female breast
in all her glories.
Perhaps boob is meant figuratively
given the men that appear on Sunday
morning news shows.
