TOP Different Voices

WHEN YOU'RE IN THE MOOD!
I hope you're not too blue,
I know it's late at night etc.
But I'm still up + when I'm up,
I'm still thinking of you...
Moody Tuesday!

TELLY GURU'S
THE HAT HE CHEWED?
Empathy? Not me,
it's pathetic how much
time they waste -
placating ego's
all over the place.
They always know
better than you -
they always will -
'til you stand up
and tell them to -
Stop talking shit!
It's a really bad attitude
that they've got -
they get it from
Telly guru's like Trinny
and What's 'er face? -
It's the way they
condescendingly say
things like -
Have a word with him!
-and -Dress down -
not up.
Full colour -
but - Not clown! -
High Street -
Not - small town.
And all the time
they force that
perfected frown -
that means so much
to their self esteem.
They can't help being cruel.
They think they're being
kind to you, by pointing
out all your facial lines...
Those Telly Guru's,
And the way they whine!

  2. I thought it went:
    when I'm up,
    you gotta be up too!
    That's the motto at our house :D

  5. i have refrained from any television that allows commercial messages for a number of years... thus my understanding of this post is delightfully not first hand.... excellent choice of voice....hey...that rhymed.....

  6. Well done! And you certainly do capture those telly gurus.

  7. I sometimes watch such telly gurus just to see how bad society's getting.
    The other one's Susannah. Can't remember which one does all the touching up though :-)

  8. You've been tagged!

    You're invited to write a memoir in six words and pass it on.

  9. Wonderful fun. Both poems are excellent. I don't know if you sound different but I'll bet not. Loved both.

  10. And it's not just them. I know a guy (it wasn't me) who saw an 'analyst'about his anger. The analyst said he had passive aggression but not to worry - it's a simple complex.
    ???
    These pieces just reminded me of that
