Let me get retro, let go of the present – drop back to the past
to the time when things were on tape. Cue it up, maybe fast
forward, rewind – there we go. Think of the shows …
A-Team, not Ed Sheeran, but Mr. T. “V” meant blows
against rat eating aliens, not Viagra. Dallas and J.R.
made it cool to like the Cowboys. Admiring a fast car
and hot legs on Daisy Dukes of Hazzard and everything
essential can be easily made by MacGuyver and a coil spring.
Get fashion advice from Miami Vice, tapping a jukebox
like the Fonz, being impressed by the way KITT talks.
You didn’t need a flat screen, just a pair of rabbit ears,
or if you’re lucky a black box. Skip ahead tens of years –
and they’ll all get remade for the big screen,
Michael Bay’ed up like digital caffeine.
