So popular

Ooh, I love a soap opera me,

The way the story lines repeat across each other

how each character can morph from bad boy to hero

at the script writers whim

once every ten years, they put together a band

Release a Christmas song

So popular, soap opera

but now they don’t even advertise soap

it’s more of a domestic appliance

like a tv, that feeds a stream of distraction

from the horrors of real life
