Spam Poetry Project: This is not really poetry at all, rather it was hidden facts about the word television.

I admit it. This is not really poetry in the truest sense. It’s simply a bunch of hidden text that defines the origins of the word television. Then again, who am I to determine what is or is not poetry? To some TV geek, this may be the most poetic prose around.

Television (TV): The etymology of the word reveals it is derived from mixed Latin and Greek origin, meaning “far sight”: Greek tele (t??e), far, and Latin visio, sight (from video, vis- to see, or to view in the first person). Now it refers to a telecommunication medium for transmitting and receiving moving images that can be monochromatic (shades of grey) or multicolored. Images are usually accompanied by sound. “Television” may also refer specifically to a television set, television programming, television transmission.

Commercially available since the late 1920s, the television set has become commonplace in homes, businesses and institutions, particularly as a source of entertainment and news. Since the 1970s the availability of video cassettes, laserdiscs, DVDs and now Blu-ray Discs, have resulted in the television set frequently being used for viewing recorded as well as broadcast material.
