Telly trouble ; trendsetter TV

:) What kids are watching on telly
are crimes and crimes in all variety!
Heinous crimes of hate
Piteous crimes of passion
Carried out at shocking rate
thinking in some wild fashion
then ending up cell mates!
Or Crime with no rhyme
Or reason
Or crime for treason,
Crime never abates
Juveniles don't fear the prison.

 When kids watch their movie heroes
shoot down people with the gun
they are incited to do the same
to achieve some thrill and fun.

 When they see their very film star
slash someone's throat in a fit of anger
 they think well of crimes of rage
and plunge everybody else into danger.

 The tendency to portray the violent scene
luridly and shockingly on the Big Screen

 Ah even for the small screen, tis the gory
that makes for the dark and thrilling story.

 Now that technology's long opened this pandora's box
the dispersal of amplified social ills simply ain't no hoax

 The rowdy hoodlums and reckless gangsters
are simply by-products of Tv influences
The world watches the thriving of the bully-boy pranksters
passively in helpless terror of their offences.

 It's all portrayal of the vulgar, the obscene
by that devious , glamorous Silver Screen

 For the spine tingling horror movie
though it may seem oh so groovy
begets the horrendous
and drills evil thoughts subliminally
into the subconscious!

 It's an unrestrained dark faking
of real life reality exaggerating

 Whether it's Bollywood in the East
or it's Hollywood in the West
they don't merely impart tactics of defence
but rather those of aggressive offence

 Viewing those gruesome swashbuckling films
gives rise to morbid sadistic whims

 Flipping through TV channels just ponder
 if the telly's the perfect channel
of information is it a proper panel?

 Dad always tells me, 'fear ye the roaches' flicking antennae?
 While you oughtta fear the influence
of 'em' flickering images by dish antennae'.

 Then a mere single merit that I dug
as I drank cappucino in my mug
that atleast one couldn't live in a bubble
daily watching the bubble-bug.

Ah but then tougher gun laws
couldn't halt even underage shooting sprees
Rather it's stringent scanning of Tv content
that might make it all cease

 Parental supervision too tis gravely essential
Should've been of parental code quintessential
 So the next time you catch your beloved teen
absorbed and engrossed while glued to the screen
Just sleuth a bit just to make sure
that for the x-rated he's not too keen!
