Lord you have blessed me so very much,
no way could I ask for more.
I'm sorry I've been so out of touch,
but now i'll even the score.

Thank you Lord for my remote control,
I couldn't live without it.
It's comforting touch makes me feel whole,
please don't you ever doubt it.

I begin this ode to my remote,
pausing to stroke it lightly.
Upon my car I don't even dote,
nor wash and wax it nightly.

The buttons are so perfectly placed,
reached by my every finger.
With shiny black plastic it's encased,
caresses of it linger.

I really don't mean to rhapsodize,
but I can't live without it.
The face of it they did anodize,
so cool I had to tout it.

I can sit back with nary a care,
propping my feet up to rest.
Surfing channels with a vacant stare,
to laziness I attest.

My favorite labor saving device,
it just goes without saying.
This Universal Remote's my vice,
it will be 'til I'm graying.

Perhaps the world would not be so addicted to television if they had never invented the remote control. Just think of all those lazy men having to stand up and walk to the television every time they had to change the channel! Think of all those beautifully mowed lawns that we would have!

LOL, very cute! I don't think I could have found words for my remote though. By the way, if they didn't have remotes and had to get up to turn the channel, ha, they would tell us to do it! LOL

Well done! The poem is great, but the fact that you rose to the challenge to write a humorous piece impresses me. To truly grow in our art, we have to be challenged..to stretch out and above the norm. You did that with this poem. Congratulations.
