Violent Video Games The Culprit - Poem by Patricia Kelley

Violent video games are making kids more violent.
They're becoming more violent say psychiatrist.
Kids are not using their imaginations.
We're only creating more psychiatric patients.
Some become the silent killer.
Not being able to control their finger.
Feeling electric impulse stimulation in their brain,
They're the kids that go into schools pulling the trigger.
Leaving other children dead or lame,
To them it's just a game.
More evidence is pointing to the culprit being a violent video game.
Trying to outdo the other,
They shoot in cold blood our sisters' and brothers'.
Even sometimes their mother,
It's all in the game.
In their mind, it rewinds.
Not knowing the difference between reality, and animation.
They get their stimulation.
It happened at Sandy Hook.
He tried to take out more than the Norwegian schnook.
Can we outlaw, or put restrictions on violent video games?
Kids that take psychotropic drugs should not be allowed to play violent video games.
Or we could find all of us in their game.

    Or we could find all of us in their game.

    This epitomizes the risk that the society runs if such games are not discouraged. Excellent work.
