Another Winter Evening And Hot Tea Cups
Would you mind, switching off the TV?
It is time, we talk serious things.
No, not gossip.
I talk of other serious things.
You forgot to read today's newspaper.
It is there on the teapoy
I don’t mind. But, one day there may be no newspapers.
The prices you pay may be excessive.
You forgot Marlowe, Byron and Lord Bacon?
The book shelf is dust-laden.
The dictionary is untouched. You see silver-fish brooding inside.
Your recreation is in your fingertips.
(This remote control made you lazy in front of the idiot-box)
You never even buy a paperback.
Would you mind spending sometime with me?
