Bruce Lanskys Favorite poem! Turn Off the TV! Turn Off the TV! By Bruce Lansky b. 1941 Bruce Lansky My father gets quite mad at me; my mother gets upset— when they catch me watching our new television set. My father yells, “Turn that thing off!” Mom says, “It’s time to study.” I’d rather watch my favorite TV show with my best buddy. I sneak down after homework and turn the set on low. But when she sees me watching it, my mother yells out, “No!”
