When a man’s gotta do

‘World of Thunder’
one more game and
I’m going under
for the last time.

There was a time
when I wouldn’t have bothered
when this would have
smothered me
look at me now,

I can name all the games
in the app’ store
my eyes are sore
my fingers numb

I am fast becoming
a gaming bum

good for social distancing
but not good enough for me.
