Flat Screen Immortality


Flicking through TV channels the other night I happened upon an actor I thought was long dead. I checked on Google, and sure enough he’s been gone twenty years. This led me to think that this must be immortality-lite, the new reincarnation.

Flat Screen Immortality

Has it ever occurred to you?
That TV stars don’t die?
No matter when they popped their clogs
They still turn up on Sky!
It’s a measure of your age
When you watch an oft-repeated show
You realise that before your eyes
It’s the re-incarnated Joe!
I want to be immortal!
Don’t want to die you see
My only hope (just like the Pope)
Is to appear on the BBC!
