Armchair Activist

I’m an armchair activist:

I switch channels

When the other parties politically broadcast;

Shake my head at the ‘Ten o’clock News’.

 

I’m an armchair activist:

I mark the documentaries

In the TV Times

Then laugh on cue

With re-runs of ‘Have I got News..’

 

I’m an armchair activist:

Eagerly involved in TV debate

I ignore the politician at the door,

And in fairness

The man from Christian Aid.

 

I’m an armchair activist:

Firmly entrenched in velour-views,

Action amounting  to no more

Than two fingers up at a thirty inch screen.
