My TV's got a busy signal,
What the hell is this?
I'll retry on channel five,
Should I buy a satellite dish?

This didn't work-so now what?
Could it be this expensive cable?
"Please reboot another time,
Or try to access later."

No news-no sports-no HBO,
What's wrong I just can't tell?
But I just heard Time Warner,
Was purchased by AOL.

So I'll no longer be allowed,
to be a channel surfer,
Since the conglomerate Time Warner,
Has been acquired from this merger.

I think it's best to forget,
My poetic posting endeavors,
Just watch TV and reply to you all,
May Ron live happily ever-after!

I'll forget your poetic endeavors as soon as I stop breathing, dear one. *G* Until then, they sustain me!! But ROFG @ your woes... don't get too comfy watching that TV... AOL is infamous for saying "goodbye" at inopportune moments! *G* Great job, Toe!

So there's Roy Rogers, in a rerun,
Riding down the trail
And a voice comes on tv that says
"Hey, Toerag, you've got mail!"

I do agree it seems to me
The world has gone to hell
If tv works as badly as
Infernal AOL!!!!!!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.
