Just For Today

I log on
I play
I am the king
Of today

Make friends
Kill more
All just to up
My score

I am great
Maybe the best
I hardly lose
To all the rest

Hours go by
Alone I play
But who cares?
It's just for today

I make the ranks
Get high scores
Get new items
Open new doors

Friends call
Still I play
I tell myself
Just for today

Chores pile up
Should I care?
Someone just shot me
"DON'T YOU DARE"

I make a clan
I am the best
It doesn't matter
If I flunk that test

Weeks go by
Still I play
I still tell myself
Just for today

    LOL- Addictive games, I understand. "Just for today", sounds like an Alcoholics Anonymous saying :) Very cool poem!
