At wit’s end

Restless ghosts whistle
They know the shadowy past
Nestled in sores that fester
Reputation scorched
On live television
Bizarre entertainment
As balance seeps
Smudgy straps of accusation loosen
Witty retorts
From the court that contorts
The afternoon seems so long

      Television is a cruel medium… moreso if the topic is as sensitive as impeaching the chief justice. Hey, thanks for visiting daydreamertoo! Really appreciate the comment.

    Well written sentiments about a tv show that leaves me wondering why anyone would air their personal issues on national tv in this manner, everyone involved ends up looking dimwitted!

      Be thankful that you have been spared. :) I put a link to the news item at the end of the post. Do read it if you’re curious.

    I never did get involved with soaps…one day on a soap could take a year of TV. Even the real news can be hard to process at times. Wow three prompts in one. Clever writer!
