Treasure Island

Video Game Victor

Video Game Victor viewed video
And audio inside his studio
Where he had a very nice patio
Of which no one knew, then, or knows today

For Video Game Victor would not leave
To go outside when he could stay inside
And play on a video water slide
Though he has yet to get wet to this day

Video Game Victor once loved to go
Out the door out into the great outdoors
But, alas, those days, they laid, long before
He claimed his video game that he played

The once slender Video Game Victor
Moved to become a sloth-like, sloppy slob
Until he was a gelatinous blob
And grew into his couch, on which he stayed

To this day Video Game Victor sits there
No friends or family, no future fate
Staring ahead in a zombie-like state
Not knowing of the sun’s beautiful rays

So, young girls and young lads, here’s the lesson
Get out into the outdoorsy outdoors
And, play and laugh like you had once before
Don’t live the Video Game Victor way

Whether you play sports or if you play games
Move about with legs and arms stretched out wide
With a bat or basketball at your side
Stand proudly and, as loud as you can, say

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
