Television Tuesday :: HGTV vs. the History Channel in haiku

25 Aug

(HGTV)

Person or people
Look for a home, rent or buy
Important life choice.

Or, person/people
Renovate buildings for use
Creating new “life.”

Person or people
Have drama, real or made up
It’s secondary.

(Sometimes when buying
It takes more of the focus
But that is stressful.)

Shows are positive
About moving forward in life
Or creating things.

(The History Channel)

Aliens!  Nazis!
Government conspiracies!Amish Mafia!

Or, middle-aged guys
Or old guys, often white ones,
Buy and sell old stuff.

Sometimes they tell tales
Of the stuff’s history, ’cause
History Channel.

Other times, they tell
Bad jokes and laugh at themselves
Quite manufactured.
