It was a family discussion about TV
The sort Dad starts for his own glee

Who d’ya like? What d’ya watch?
He gets like that when drinking scotch

“Horror movies for me,” my brother said
“Eww,” replied my sister, “Horror is dead,
Romance movies are the best ones ever.”
I think she was just trying to be clever

“How about TV shows.” Dad went on to ask
I knew he had some glory in which he thought he’d bask

“I like Friends.” my sister cried out aloud
“NCIS for me,” my brother said oh so proud

Then all full of smug came our Dad’s reply
“They don’t like the Flintstones in a place like Dubai.”

It was easy to see Dad had just been waiting for his cue
Because then he said, “but people in Abu Dhabi do.”
