This video game is just like real life
Hang on, I want to save here, just in case
Whoops, I lost my job, my house, and my wife
Load game, try again, this time I save face
Pause game and let me take a breath of air
This level’s hard – made it to the boss fight
I lost again, Game Over, it’s not fair
Load game, try again, this time do it right
I wasted too much time with the girlfriend
Why should this stupid game cause me such strife?
At this rate I won’t make it to the end
It’s all gone wrong, never mind: Restart life
It’s a poem about real life. Well… kind of.
