Best Elly D. A. Wouterse Poems

all kids sitting behind their desk with an intense focus on their screen

all two-units almost statuesque and beaming intimate extreme sheen

buttons and fingers are dancing as scenes sound like a violent war

their eyes and face only smiling while yelling loud another high score

when having a break and a large coke another screen with breaking news
a story about some old bloke his body all covered with tattoos

he was shot in a blind alley and just seven bullets were enough

he had lost his dead man’s rally also being kicked by the real tough

one picks up a remote control thoughtless pushing a killing button

it is causing no changes but is  game on' to be a real option
