What might happen if you lived in a video game!
Video Star

I’d hate to star in my own video game,
Chased by monsters and bullets and warriors;
Forever avoiding eternal androiding
While battling evil destroyers.

No, I wouldn’t like being in a video game
Unless it was faster and shorter.
Because just when you think it’s all over, kaplink,
Someone drops in another quarter.
