Game Addict

Exhaustion’s none so sweet as this:
A bruised raw thumb and stiff, numb wrists
My red eyes spy the clock — it’s two
And bedtime is long overdue.

Just twenty minutes more for fun!
Biotic amps and Scimitar gun
Strapped on Asari avatar
To join the interstellar war.

I crane my neck up from my couch,
assume the universal slouch,
and thumbs on gamepad move the sticks
And hope this thrill ride’s over quick

For I must be at work by eight;
A poor excuse for being late —
Good thing the iPad’s safe upstairs
Bad Piggie HD’s waiting there!
