It has now been scientifically proven
that telly is better than poetry.
Psychologists stuck a load of people in a room
with both a telly and a poem –
on average, they spent about two minutes
disinterestedly glancing at the poem
before settling down for the remainder of the hour
to watch Homes Under The Hammer.
This proves that telly
is better than poetry.
So burn your books, people!
Grab those comfies and settle down
in the name of science.
