Videogame Villanelle - Poem by Jacob Coleman

I hate easy-living (Winter’s been slow) .
I see a few snowflakes and my heart sinks.
I miss the magic lands of Nintendo.

This new game I got lets me pretend (Whoa!)
Like I’m Thor saving mankind from the brink
Of extinction. Thank god for Nintendo!

Mom says there are better ways to spend dough.
I don’t know. Hot girls or Pokemon? (Zinc
Version) . Heck, I’m going with Nintendo!

Now I have Game Boy Syndrome. I bend low
And my scoliosis kicks in…it stinks.
A friend suggested I sue Nintendo.

I do solemnly swear: I intend no
Disrespect to Zelda, Mario, or Link
(For god’s sake PROPERTY OF NINTENDO) .

Right now, Wii Fit is the latest trend so
I might get a job and buy it (Just think,
I can burn fat AND play my Nintendo!)
Final Fantasy will never end so
Forget that! All I need is Nintendo …
