Ode of the Gamer

Video games, a honey dripping goldmine
         Entering a fantasy world away from the truth
                 Escaping life, so ritual and mono
         To get a passion out of screen heroes
Hopping to a goal, avoiding pitfalls of death
Seeking inspiration out of the human craft
Going on adventures and being thrilled to breakfast
         Helps the hands, helps the eyes
               Trains the brain to see the patterns
        The agony of defeat, the thrill of victory
              Especially against all odds
              In times of backs against the wall
Clinging to life, wits and intelligence
It’s a fine mosaic of pixels, a jungle of creativity
        Taking us on destination in all possible directions
And the journey from Pac-Man to Halo
       That’s an historical set of events
               In the words of a gamer:
              Achievement Unlocked
