    The “ridiculous machine” is the television in the poem. The poet uses a lot imagery to describe it as television is concerned with lots of wonderful and terrible images and must be interesting enough to watch the audience’s attention. He portrays the dangerous threat which a television poses for everyone especially the kids and pleads the parents to not put their kids in front of the “idiot box.” The poet says that the children are unable to think as they observe what they see from the TV. The child no longer questions what is right or wrong but only digests whatever is injected into their brain through the TV. He critiques the invention of the television, very correctly known as the “idiot box.”
