A child's reflection in the TV screen, fragmented pixels mirrored in the child's eyes.


“haven’t seen my face in moons...”
the creatures wake tonight
by the way they look, they surely could
the wicked, the wicked!

and the winning goes to homies
military chant
never fault your heroes

failing on the number game
calculated smile
returning home with zero
what have you lost?

swearing on the fuzzy tube
a bleeping waste of time
and the waking on your telly
has your name

i switch it off
the room turns dark
there’s no one home
i switch it on

your reflection

it’s a miracle the angel came
with a brand new nose and smile
how glamorous the heavens are
this time of year

the lady loathes the media sharks
she claims on four
whilst she waits for the next tv spot
to bark the same

i miss the news I skip the talk
i heard it all
there’s another war of words in two
are you still on hold?

match the face to win the prize
it pays to buy the rags
how much more should we know?

i switch it off
reflection stares
who is that child
with the brave cold eyes?
