Poets need to live

pay attention to us:
300,000 bodies.

terrorist, the
new word
i didn’t know about
all these years.

I wrote that after watching a show on History channel the other day when I just decided to brain-out in front of the TV for a few hours.  Technically the original version was LOST due to BasKet weirding out on me, also lost a haiku that was prolly my best ever.  Hell if I remember that one though.

But anyway.  Back to whatever point I’m trying to come up with:

I was watching a show on History channel that was about Saddam Hussein (I’ll check spelling on that later).  Interesting stuff.  Very interesting stuff.

I don’t watch much TV.  Usually when I do its a little bit of cartoons.  We have a million DVDs so we watch a lot of movies.  I get my House fix from Hulu and watch Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia there also.

So basically I live in a world of fiction.  And I have been for awhile.  I won’t look at the news or newspaper, I rarely talk to people ‘cept on the internet and that’s pretty much a bit fiction too, right? Unless we’re talking hard n heavy real stuffs…

So this show was absolutely fascinating to me.  It had footage of real life, of people doing very real things… even if the commentary wasn’t all real (you have to admit there’s biased shows out there and hey, everything is paraphrased for time).

So today’s lesson is in today’s title.
