Bedtime used to mean one thing––
all the pleasures sleep can bring;
but now life’s not so cut and dry,
and yes, I’m going to tell you why.
A smart TV up on the wall
turns bed into a shopping mall,
a cinema or library,
transmitter of pornography,
a research center or gaming table.
Anything that you are able
to conceive of, and then more
now waits behind your bedroom door.
