Canto CCXXX

I switch the channel from some Police Chase porn
and watch scientists chop up a kangaroo.
In TV land there’s never “nothing on”,

something is always happening, switch through
the reruns of the single season duds,
the shopping channels and the rolling news,

cowboys die loudly but without blood,
all those tributes to that sunken liner—
and while I must admit I’m bloody bored,

I just learned kangaroos have three vaginas.

    All those channels, and nothing worth watching.
    I didn’t take much from this poem except for the phrase,
    “something is always happening” which struck me as a touch ironic.
