A DVD is for Me

By Bud Lemire

A DVD is for me
It's what I like to see
Binge watching brings me joy
I feel just like a little boy
Move forward or move back
Got to find the scene, the title track
That's where I left off before
Now I long for even more

A DVD looks a lot like a CD
But it plays videos that you can see
They look alike, but they're not
Be sure you know what you got
Closed Caption is for those who can not hear
It's make understanding the video, much more clear
Read the words, upon the screen
What is said, goes with what is seen

You can watch movies or shows from TV
That's the reason I love the DVD
I don't have Blue-Ray, I love my DVD
On the screen, it works perfectly for me
Sitting on my couch, watching my favorite show
Believe me, it's the only way to go
A great meal, and a good scene on my TV
Because I'm watching my DVD

One disc, two, three, four and five
It's great enjoyment, I feel alive
A series that I just love
It's all that I can think of
There's so much to watch on DVD
Choose the ones you want to see
A series that I really love
Is the one I'm thinking of

Unwrapped and all ready to play
My DVD is the truly the only way
Right from the store
Who could ask for more
No streaming video, no live TV
I'll just sit back and watch my DVD
You have to choose what's right for you
Maybe your choice will be a DVD too

Author Note:

Ever since we don't get streaming videos, I decided
to try DVDs as my way of watching TV. Yes, you are still
paying. But no matter which way you choose, you have
to pay something. It seems to be working for me. And you
have all those Bonus things included, that you don't see
on TV. Anyway this is my choice for now.
