Television by Suzy Davies



If I feel the blues a calling,

and it begins to rain,

I switch on the black button,

and soon I smile, again,

Frasier, his dad, and Daphne,

and Niels amuse me, but,

the thing that makes me laugh the most’s

that naughty little mut.


If I got a kind of wanderlust –

everything’s the same,

the master of all things travellin’s

Anthony Bourdain.

The parts unknown he takes me to

are those I’d never seen.

The montage of his movies

surely are The Stuff of Dreams.


If I’m feelin’ kinda serious

Don Lemon hits the spot,

brings me all the news

at 11, on the clock.

His interviews are erudite

his presentation’s cool,

and his street smarts

mean Don Lemon

is anythin’ but a fool.


If I want a taste of business

now Shark Tank’s a good bunch,

there are hustlers and losers,

and the team have them for lunch.

But when someone steps forward –

their idea’s a money spinner –

the winning sharks take over,

cos they know they got a winner.
