THE TROLL

You spend too much time
In front of a screen
You’ll burn your eyes out
Not sure what she means

You should get some sun
Leave your room, ride your bike
You used to have friends
Go outside, take a hike

My sister’s not helping
Nicknamed me THE TROLL
Computer games rock
They won’t steal my soul

There’s PAC-MAN and TETRIS
There’s ZELDA and PONG
ASTEROIDS, CENTIPEDE
Of course DONKEY KONG

FROGGER and MARIO
Or something bionic
And who can forget
A Hedgehog named SONIC

I don’t have to go
When my mom says, “Outside!”

Oh, wait. I get it.

You thought I was a kid
Nope! I’m forty-five.


 

The Troll

As always, I'm not really sure where "THE TROLL" came from. But I do know there are a LOT of parents, OK, dads most likely, that play a LOT of video games.

But they can do that. They're grownups... as long as their wives say it's OK.
