Pop in a disc,
lean on back.
My mouth drops open,
my arms go slack.
The only part of me that shows life is my hands,
which feverishly labor to defend mythical lands,
Or to destroy an alien race,
or to put an item back in its place.
People try to reach me from their mortal plane,
but I neither hear them, nor feel their pain.
Even still, I consider this experience priceless,
I'll keep playing video games 'till I fall lifeless.
