I tried to write about a movie
but I hardly ever watch them through
as when I sit down to watch tv
I fall asleep and miss who is who.
I replay the film and fast forward
through all the bits I have seen before
but it can be surely guaranteed
that I will not get to see much more.
I’m soon off again to slumber land
I try to stay awake but can not
and I’ll wake up at the very end
having again missed the whole plot.
Movies to me are a mystery
no matter how good their production
it’s ever been thus in my history
but they are good for sleep induction!
