Wii bowling seems such a trivial thing
Out of date, out of style
Something you haven’t played for a while
At the time, it was so sophisticated, so real
But now… it sits on the back of a shelf
With a game system no longer in use
But not for all
On the outskirts of a small town
There is a boy in a townhome,
Clinging to this game system.
That no longer has games released,
And plays knock off racing games
Using it’s mandatory tilt controls to beat it.
And sometimes a girl,
His neighbor, his friend
Will stop by to play with him.
Not to race as Sonic or his friends
But to get totally crushed by three turkeys
And two spares at the ends.
They go on messing eachother up
Both hoping the other would slip up.
But she knows it’s futile
For she’s never won
But that’s until they switch
To ping pong 1 v 1…
