Poem 88 – Box Set Binge

Remember when you had to wait
A week to catch the next part of
Your favourite show upon the box?

Now things have changed, diversified
There’s streaming, on demand, catch-up
And channels multiply, what choice!

The trouble is like a black hole
It pulls you in with the promise
That cliff hangers need not hang on

But now it’s late I ought to stop
As the alarm is primed to ring
But first, perhaps, another one!

We’d only meant to watch a single episode of Drop the Dead Donkey tonight, but somehow a while series had passed us by…
