Everyone enjoys TV, but sometimes, it takes up so much of our time that we forget to give a little time to each other.
Sadly, Mr Pye found this out when he needed a little time with his family.

Mr Pye thought it time he bought his wife a treat;
So, in he wheeled a new TV with DVD, complete.
All the family gathered round and soon began to see,
That their lives were meaningless before they had TV.
Morning, noon and evening, nothing passed them by,
And when they were a little bored, they switched onto Sky.
Now, Mr Pye, he liked to play an old board game awhile,
And when there came a rainy day, he asked them, with a smile.
"Now! What about a bit of fun with all of us together?
Let us play an old board game, with all this awful weather!"
"But it's our favourite soap on soon." Gran and Granddad cried.
Everyone agreed with them. Mr Pye just sighed.
Children's Story: by
Mr Pye was speaking once while they were having tea,
But everyone ignored him, their eyes all on TV.
Mr Pye stood up and tried to hide the screen,
But staring at his legs, they tried to see between.
Switching off the programme, Mr Pye went red;
Grandma put her knitting down and hurried off to bed.
Mr Pye sat down again and making one last plea,
He tried to reason with them all, while he poured the tea.
But Mr Pye knew soon enough that it was all in vain,
When Granddad reached the telly switch and clicked it on again.
Now Mr Pye was angry, without a 'beg your pardon',
He picked the TV up and threw it in the garden.
Children's Story: by
Mr Pye was sorry for what he did that day.
Now, everything was quiet and still no-one would play.
The children went to visit friends, Gran was leaving home;
Mrs Pye was bored and always on the phone.
Mr Pye thought it time to give them all a treat;
So, in he wheeled a new TV with DVD, complete.
