Random Poem:

oo ooo oprah

Dear Oprah
i ve always enjoyed your show. Always something inspiring. I remember you said how you were a good communicator and wanted to do TV but forgot to say how you are a good eater and would be bad for the food channel. I remember when you said judge someone from their character and then bask in your audiences applause when you lost 32 ibs. I remember when you said the war in iraq is a war that affects women and children there and that war is bad and  how you photogenically forgot war is unjust most of the time yet is necessary in rare moments especially in self defence. I remember when Dr phil would come on your show and help people with problems that simply needed people to start being mature and prioritze but how you made him into a messiah for the masses. I always remember how you would tell people to be responsible yet implicitly get them addicted to your show, you know substituting one god for another all in the name of a healthy lifestyle and blingbling.
I can never forget the gifts you give out. The tv the hummer the chocolates the books the vacations the therapy sessions the jacuzzis the clothes. How do you combine life spirit and material debauchery? i love it. i thought tv preachers were sophisticated but your material evangelism camouflaged by notions of spirituality gives me a frikking O all the time.And how could I forget the O magazine. I hear you are coming out with a braille friendly version so that our blind friends can feel O let alone hear O. I ask you when will the O xygen channel drop those remaining  redundant 5 letters.  i dont want to breathe oxygen when i can breathe O !!!!
I just love you oprah
you are not chicken soup but walmart for my soul
