Long legged boys
Filling my sofa
Controllers in hand
Deep laughs mingle with shrill cries
As Black Ops rolls
Every weekend they come to call
Filling my sofa
Littering shoes in my hall
Then are gone in a flash as dinners beckon
And the sofa is empty

  1. Lovely depiction of video gaming from a “gamers widow” point of view. One guys have an uncanny ability to ignore.

  2. I love this.. simple words yet I can clearly see the scene and hear the giggles! Bravo
