The Game

The Game

Rape, murder, carnage and hate,
The four items we embrace.
Entertainment fills with these ghastly deeds,
While teaching our children about virtual need.

As they play on with the tick of the clock,
Their minds fill with death, sex and rot;
Seeking thrills that haunt most souls,
These children rape … in their next, virtual episode.

Trained from youth to destroy and mutilate,
Gaining points for the atrocities in which they dictate;
Committing crimes against all in their way:
Crosshairs aligned — they commit their next virtual crime,
All in the name of having a good time!

These children live in their virtual realities
With brainwashing of evil lining their mentalities;
Defiant, and littered with wrath
They wait to pummel all in their path.

Society decays at accelerated rates,
Atrocities disregarded in our physical state;
People cheer as they kill and rape
The next victim in their playing space!

I sit vexed, disheartened and morally collapsed
Contemplating how children embrace these facts
Outlined in the games, they think of fun:
Playing in life the lessons learned
— In their virtual gaming world!
