Go unplug your television,
Constant rain and markets crashing,
And the hundredth repetition
Of the season’s latest fashions.
Go turn off the grim prognosis,
And the doctor’s new prescriptions,
For depression, runny noses,
And your cancers in remission.
Go switch off the hottest action,
Sex and money, drug addictions,
And the search for satisfaction
That is full of contradictions.
Turn your back on wealthy Christians
And their arms of toothless smiles
Asking you to fund their mission
And those children’s endless trials.
Close your ears to regulations
Of self-centered politicians
That assist big corporations
With a friendly disposition.
Break away from your attachment -
Shark attacks and train collisions,
And instead use better judgment, -
Go unplug your television.
