Lament for a Gamer

Lament for a Gamer

Depression is chemicalor

so they say

Tablets to be taken

twice a day

Like Pacman chasing

little blue pills

Or Mario bouncing

round those hills

I wish I had just

1 more try

Another slice of

virtual pieI dodge

and dance

with invaders from space

While trying to win

The human ‘race.’

But in this life

you get one game

when you die

won’t come back again

So I’ll storm that

castle until I’m done

I get the message

You’ve finally won.


What do you think?
