The Writers Gaming Room

A stormtrooper guards the exit door
as the cherry-hunting, dot-munching
PAC-MAN runs from colour changing
ghosts across adjoining walls, top floor.

From Atari and Sega to Grandstand and more
the Action Man watches the writers rambling
Frustration. Sitting below the Hang Man, trying
hard for words to Dreamcast; to Commodore

a Buck-a-roo! A shrine to Nintendo;
Super Mario is forever a Game Boy.
Donkey Kong and Luigi without a Cluedo.

Clinging onto the past Rubik’s Clock tells no
time, whilst his cube remains an undefeated toy.
The Eagle is Dandy but you can’t Topper Beano.
