Back in the 90's, I had a hobby of following my friends around at clubs and making them write bad poetry for me. The word poetry was used very loosely. Well, completely incorrectly would be a better term since it was also used for articles, completely fabricated self-help columns and random complete and utter nonsense.
These are the results of those (often drunken) ramblings.

What the fuck is going on?

What the fuck is going on?
By Annonymous (Nancy)

MTV is for the cool
VH1 if for those who suck
So what’s the deal with STP
Nirvana and Soundgarden?
Why do I have to tune
Into a channel
To watch my favorite bands
That if I found out
You were watching
I would beat up your ass
What I would like to know is
What the fuck is going on?
I’ve become my worst
A closet VH1 watcher.

So, I guess I gave away the secret, Nancy wrote this one. It's deffinitely her style so I think you guys would have guess even if I had not spoiled the anonymity. It goes to show you how long ago this was written that it mentions MTV and VH1 in relation to music. Not to mention that she lists Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana as her favorite bands. I'm not sure why she hated VH1 so much, but I do know those of  us that were kids when MTV  came out, held a fondness for it for a long time after it stopped deserving it. The truth is it was cool in the 80's, it's not just nostalgia. But by the early 90's when this was written they had already started on the one way trip to Craptown.
