video game haiku from the resigned gamer, solomon's key

If wisdom and experience show we can't triumph alone, what does it say about us that our video game protagonists do? How have so many stood successfully against armies with nothing but our fists, our wits, and our three lives? In this age of aim assist and resprays on every corner, it's easy to forget how fragile we once were. How fragile we still are.


oy gevalt my head
should not be used to break stones.
where's the aspirin?

solomon's key haiku
bought wand on clearance
it can only make boulders
store says no refund

solomon's key resigned gamer
hidden capital
better it be invested
higher ebitda

solomon's key running
cerebral people
prefer a nice puzzle game
klezmer adventure

solomon's key
tomb raiders these days
this lara croft and her guns
but my, what bosoms!
