For today’s prompt, write a temptation poem. Nearly everyone is tempted by something: fame, glory, money, chocolate. Today is the perfect day to give in to the temptation to write about your (or “a friend’s”) temptation. Also, I totally understand the temptation to write about The Temptations today.
Turning on the television is too easy.
It should require a crank like early automobiles
instead of pressing a simple button
from the comfort of my couch.
Any given day there’s a marathon
of something mildly entertaining
or I can make my own on-demand
and just slip into a procrastination.
I’ve got a full bag of chips
and some dip that’s nearing expiration.
This wine’s not going to drink itself.
I’ve written enough poems this month.
Are you spying on me? Stop writing about my life! :)

Resonates with me!
Glad you share my pain.
Love the first stanza! Reminds me of the basic TVs we had when I was in elementary school. One TV didn’t have a remote. It might have been that one, or another, that took about 10 seconds to warm up before you could see ‘the picture.’ You’d hear the voices first. Poetic in itself.
Those were the good ole days!
