Book Versus TV

Everybody asked the child,
"What will you select?
Your old and dusty books,
Or your brand new TV set?"
The child replied,
"I'd love to fancy the TV set,
But one must understand,
That Television is the worst enemy.
A child can have on land.
Firstly it occupies the child,
It changes his brain to lead.
It changes him to couch potato
It kills his imagination dead.
The books on the other hand,
Are the best of man's creations.
They improve the child's wit and humour;
They give wings to his imagination."
The people nodded to the truth,
Like statues they stood.
And when they left,
'Books are than the television,
They had understood.'
