Reality Redefined

Reality Redefined

(From Reality Shows to Reality Politicians, the meaning

of the word seems to have shifted to its opposite.)

Your underwhelming comments on my photographs should shame me,
but if they foster apathy, you really cannot blame me.
Timeless snapshots can’t be made of subjects that are boring,
and ordinary truth, it seems, leaves viewers merely snoring.

“What seems to be” has turned into the new truth that we seek—
reality  becoming something we can tweak.
A pantomimed emotion, sadly, I must confess,

if one is good enough at it, is good enough, I guess.

So bring on the kitschy actor, the reality show clown.
Their entertainment value will bring them wide renown.

They are what is called for in this modern cyber world.
“Reality’s” new meaning therein has been unfurled.

 

Prompt words are snapshot, underwhelming, timeless, kitschyfoster and pantomime.

    Today your example in poetry is such a well done poem that makes me stop and think~! That “SHOW” was terrible, only showing him as the fake “journeyman”, “teacher” or boss, none of which he ever was; in fact he only relished the time each week, when he embarrassed each “underling” saying: “You Are Fired~!!!” This is what we should have said in his first day he was in office~!

    Nor was his father good at setting an example, as his teacher, because he became a terrible apprentice, not learning anything except the wrong way, and an evil outlook throughout his life. But YES it was an example of a dumb show of his aggressiveness, his life, and the presidency, AND he still has never apprenticed anything but evil in all those years. And though he thinks so, he will never be the “professor emeritus” he thinks he is; in fact he would not even make a good proctor.~! Thanks for reminding us~!
