Total TV presents
Times Square, arguably one of the busiest intersections in America, serves as the perfect backdrop for my "wake-up" poem targeted to us "distracted" Americans. As I encourage others to do in the poem, I attempt to stay "focused" on the task at hand, almost becoming a Times Square Billboard myself. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
We are a country evolving into a rapidly evolving society of "haves" and "have nots". Though all of us have "guilty pleasures", ranging from reality tv shows to silly movies, to more reality shows, it's important to remember to stay focused, pay it forward, and help one another. This poem is in memory of Gil Scott Heron. "The Revolution Will Not be Televised - Where Pop Culture Meets Politics - from my book of short stories "Red Clay Dirt & Mountains" Available on Amazon.
