Art And Science Of Pong

            Art And Science Of Pong

Not tennis, not quite ping pong, it’s Pong.
Not everything in life is black and white.  Pong is.
There are no laws regarding playing Pong without your clothes on
Or playing in the dark
There should be, as that is simply wrong  
Be alarmed and warned against distractions
It is suggested that women wear makeup while playing in the game
Not for any particular reason
The trick to winning Pong is in the wrist and never miss
A tiny white dot
Or is it a square shaped dot like thing, appears on the TV screen
Very surreal and unstable, moving at the speed
With the social graces of a turtle
It flows across a black back drop at mesmerizing tranquilizing slow motion
Takes an hour or two to travel or traverse from side to side
Read War and Peace between each serve and drink milk to develop skill 
Two small thin lines or “cursors”, fixed on either side
(It is wise to have two sides to any screen to know which side you’re on)
The cursors act as paddles to hit the moving dot
As they maneuver up and down
A loud “blip” sound indicates a hit
Sends the dot crawling back into the darkness
Returning later from a black hole in time and space into the proper place
You have time to finish art and science projects while involved in Pong
Waiting for the dot and its Halley’s Comet like return
The essence of the game is to keep the dot in play
For $250.00 USD you can’t go wrong
It’s Pong!
