The Videoblame

Videogames all about crime or war,
Quite often are full of blood, guts and gore,
And people are worried that you may find,
That violent games can alter the mind,
Moulding our children, so young and naive,
Into creatures intent to abuse and aggrieve,
But in today’s world there’s worse violence and fights,
Than those contained within bits and in bytes,
No one is harmed in digital wars,
There’s no loss of life in the Cyber Corps,
And if you’d spend an hour of your time,
Researching cases of Nintendo fuelled crime,
You’d have to admit there are far more reports,
Of people injured whilst playing Wii Sports!

    I love the approach you took here. If the games were the main cause probably few of us would be here today. You also added a bit of humor. Well done.
