Telly torments

My life became a constant
theme tune,
Coronation Street
Steptoe and Son
worst of all,
Terry and June

I know they’re not real
just situations
but I find myself
humming insanely
someone should
‘brain me’
(the Northerners’ll get that one)

It’s not rocket science
not Beethoven either
and
I’d rather learn those
than
keep wrinkling my nose
at those awful themes
but it seems I will.
