TV Night at Home with Friends

Half the people in the room
Think it’s incredibly cool.
The rest find it disturbing.

It’s a murder mystery,
A conspiracy theory,
A town as a haunted house.

It’s like pulling up floorboards
And discovering termites
In the local museum.

Half the people haven’t seen
Anything like it before,
And find themselves unsettled.

The half who begged to watch it,
Who said it was about home,
Feel it’s home surrounding them.

None of them will remain friends
For long after this school year,
Although they’ll all live full lives,

And the pilot shown tonight
Will draw or repulse others
To and from them, many years.
