Turn Off

Well-spoken types with greasy grips
extol their latest offer,
performing shocking backward flips
to stuff their bulging coffer.

Indignant clergy sermonize,
they caper and admonish,
declaring those that patronize
The Lord will soon astonish.

Didactic sorts with hooded eyes
and more obscure agendas,
discreetly serve indulgent pies
to lure the biggest ‘spendas’.

A picture starts to form between
the channels quickly flicking—
beware this ravenous machine
designed for pocket-picking!
