going to the fair

going to the fair
leaving behind
each care

leaves room for fun
knowing it has
just begun

walking through
the midway
time flew

seeing each sight
smelling the foods
everything's right

the prices all too high
but free fun too
before long, saying good bye

watching tv with my teens

I don't much like
to watch tv

but I know there are things
my kids want to see

they are getting old enough now
that it's hard to refuse

so I feel like if I watch with them
we don't all lose

watching together brings out
good discussions

about characters, their actions
and the repercussions

it's nice to have them listen
and also hear what they say

so I feel like watching tv
isn't such a waste of day
