Inquiring Minds Want to Know


I have often wondered
About those reality TV shows
Does anybody know
What really happens?
Cos inquiring minds want to know

It is easier watching paint dry
But bickering people in petty feuds
Make much better viewing
Is this all staged or true?
Cos inquiring minds want to know

Bachelors and bachelorettes meeting
Pretty people on the screen
Daily scandals in the rags
Are these set up for the ratings?
Cos inquiring minds want to know

Every action analysed
Each trivial thought overstated
Brainless viewing being promoted
Is popular culture dumbing down?
Cos inquiring minds want to know

Desperately pursuing ratings
With voyeuristic fly-on-the-wall
Celebrity Big Brother and real-life soaps
Has reality TV reached its nadir?

Cos inquiring minds want to know


Today it is 'I' for 'Inquiring Minds Want to Know'.

My challenge for April is to write poetry. 
My A to Z entries can be navigated to from this page - A2Z, I will be very pleased if you managed to take some time out to read and comments on the poems.

I'd love read what you think about this post...

    Hey, great poem and I know what you mean. I've only watched a few episodes. Keira drives me crazy and yet I feel for her. I wonder what her life is like off the screen.
    Best wishes,

    1. I think that "reality"is staged and the true reality is hidden from the viewers. Thanks for dropping in to comment Rowena.
