20.2.14 TV Daddy

I was raised by children’s cartoons
The Holy Bible of family and Disney
The teachings of a schoolyard playground
Every life lesson I could need condensed into half an hour

My parents were the prophets of the tube
Telling to leave them be and watch tv
I could every lesson of a damsel in distress
and a bully and victim vicariously though animated teens

My wisdom, thoughts and morals could be pinpointed
by show and episode, the one where he falls
Where he picks himself back up
Where his mentor and parent is someone he can talk to

not a screen he can stare at
