Blistered fingers and Broken thumbs

Annoying brothers and sisters that won't shut up.

Buttons clogged with crumbs

Hands stiff with cramps

The unexplainable itch

That loses the match

And causes a fit

The bathroom break

That just can't wait

Remembering to save

After you lose the game

The impossible level

That makes you feel dumb

That tests your mettle

...And makes you look it up

A gamers' plague

While rarely satisfactory

Is worth every ache

With the sweet adrenaline rush of victory
