Mother says....

Mother says
The world has gone rife with perversity
So we look at it
Only through the windows of the living room
 "Don't play with the kids outside
 For they are below contempt."
So we sit in front of the TV
Ladled with oily snacks and big toys
To the escape the perversity
Of the world outside.

But what we see in the box
Mugs our childhood
Leaving us more rotten
Than the kids who play outside.
