Watching Dad Watch The News

Mom got the idea in her head
that as a family we should dine
In theory this makes sense
In truth, it was less than divine

Dad used the dinner-hour to watch
the news on the kitchen TV
Needless to say, this is not family dining
It did not improve the family

As cool as Dave Moore may have been
(he was a famous news-anchor)
Listening to a guy reading the news
instead of your kids, causes rancor

This little verse may be a warning
about dysfunctionality
If it’s broke, don’t break it more
It won’t help your family.
