Dinner time was quickly approaching and I just wasn’t in the mood to cook. I mean duh, I have better things to do like, uhhhhhhh, hmmmm errr, whatever.
That’s not the point.
I decided to have a T.V. dinner night! I thought if I acted like it was a theme party it would go over well!
“Hey guys let’s have T.V. dinner night!” I said with the enthusiasm of a game show host.
Hook, line, and sink em.
It then dawned on me as I pulled this picture of beauty out of the oven, that T.V. dinners are simply unappreciated. I too had the realization, that I was in fact deeply in love with the T.V. dinner. I decided to express my fondness for such wonder, through poetry.
Ode to the T.V. Dinner
Gerry Thomas, you brilliant man
Your T.V. dinners
Well, I’m their biggest fan
In 1954, on the table they were placed
No more wasting time in the kitchen
No dishes to do, not even a trace
Hungry Man you’re always there
in your cardboard box, packaged up with care
You’re there to help me
When I’m in need
All 4 food groups, yes indeed
Your meatloaf makes me smile
I’ll admit it, I’m not in denial
Bright green peas, carrots galore
Your mashed potatoes have me wanting more
Fried chicken and salisbury steak
And none of this food did I have to make
Am I dreaming, pinch me for real
You had me at hello, with one simple meal.
