It Seems ... Mr. Ross ...
Has BROKEN Some ... " Boundaries " ...
  
But ... If it's Not Him ...  
It's That Man ... " Ali G " ... !!!  
    
Or Maybe A ... " Pundit " ...  
On Late Night TV ... ?!?  
    
But ...  
Shows That They're SLAMMING ...  
Claim To Be ... " Comedies " ... ?!?  
    
Can Someone Explain ...  
How They Get On ... TV ... ?!?  
    
" Have I Got News For You "  
    
Is On ... BBC ...  
As is ... Mr. Ross ...  
But NOT ... Ali G ...  
    
Channel 4 ... Is The Channel ...  
Where He Seems To Be ...  
    
But ...  
Now They're Complaining ...  
That Things They Are Saying ...  
AREN'T Really ... " Funny " ... !?!  
    
But ...  
THIS Is ... LONG After ...  
Execs' Get MONEY ... !!!  
    
NOT Just Celebs' ...  
But THOSE ... TV Heads ...  
Who CLAIM That ... " The Edit " ...  
Didn't Get To ... THEIR DESK ... !?!  
    
So ....  
What Were They Doing ... ?  
Instead of ... Tape Viewing ... ?!?  
    
Now ...  
That Is A Thought ...  
To Leave Your Mind ... " Stewing " .............  
    
See ...  
THIS Is ... " The Problem " ...    
With Critics and ... " Liberals " ...  
THEY ... Twist and Turn ...  
Like ... " Arjen Robben " ... !!!  
    
It's OKAY To USE Blacks ...  
For ... SHAMELESS Displays ...  
EVEN If A GREAT MANY ...  
DON'T Behave THAT Way ... !?!  
    
But Some SILLY Blacks ...  
Are READY To Say ...  
    
" Don't worry i'll do it ! "  
    
Just For A ... " PAYDAY " ... !!!  
    
That's Just My View ...  
Cos' TV ... Is SEE THROUGH ...  
    
DON'T EVER Be Fooled ...  
They KNOW What They Do  ...  
    
These SHOCK VALUE Stories ...  
Remind Me of ... TORIES ... !!!  
    
and Like ... MOST of Them ...  
THESE Stories Just Bore Me ... !!!  
    
I Thought This Was WHY ...  
We Have The ... " Watershed " ... !?!  
    
Cos' ...  
By The Time ... Half Past Nine ...  
Shouldn't Kids Be IN BED ... ?!?  
    
Parents ... Be CAREFUL ...  
Which Channel You PRESS ... !!!  
    
Cos' Your Child May Just Be ... ???  
REPEATING ... What Is Said ...  
On ... Late Night TV ...  
To Get Some STREET CRED' ... !!!  
    
This Is MY Belief ...  
It's Those SAME TV Chiefs ...  
That PUT ... FOUL-MOUTHED Actors ...  
On .... " Comic Relief " ....  
    
They KNOW What They're Doing ...  
They SET UP ... SHOCK Viewing ... !!!!!  
    
From Soaps Like ... " Eastenders " ...  
To ... Late Night Agendas ...  
    
To ...  
CONJURE UP ... Figures ...  
From Ali G ... " WIGGERS' " ...  
To RAPPERS Who YES ...  
Are REALLY ... Gold Diggers ... !!!  
    
Who Just Try To ... SHOCK ...  
With Words That They've Got ... !!!  
    
THESE Rap Battles Generate ...  
MILLIONS of Sales ... !!!!!!  
    
Don't You SEE ... ?  
Thats' The Plot ...  
    
DON'T Sit and COMPLAIN ...  
Cos' The Lot We've Now Got ...  
Is Running ... AMOK ...  
    
Somewhat Like ...  
... Your SNOT ... !!!  
    
Whatever Has Happened ...  
To .... TECHNOLOGY .... ?!?  

Unless The Show's LIVE ...  
Can't They Just Use The BLEEP ... ?!?  
    
EVEN If The Show's LIVE ...  
I Suggest They Start Using ...  
Technology ... " Tricks " ...  
    
And Then THIS Whole PROBLEM ...  
Could Simply Be ... FIXED ...  
    
PROFANITY Is ...
Part of ... REALITY ...  
    
And REALITY Is ..  
A Reflection of ... " WE " ...  
    
The Image of ... YOU ...  
And The Image of ME ...    
    
I Hope ... This Little Poem ...  
Has Helped You To SEE ...  
    
That ...  
ALL of This ... NONSENSE ...  
Is Simply Just ... BLEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPP ... !!!!!!  
    
And THAT Is My View ...  
On These **** ...  
    
.... " Boundaries " ....
Hardly seems quite so relevant nowadays, however, after Dave Chappelles revelation about what's deemed suitable for TV and what's not, it's still an interesting subject. This was written around the time that Jonathan Ross had got into a little bit of hot water for F-Bombing A Comic Relief Show .... http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3226011.stm
