When it's for me the time of day,
For them it is the time of night,
But still we are able to play
This game where in battle we fight.
One side of this world blessed with light,
One side covered under a shade,
But still that does not interrupt
The way we play, the way we trade.
Under the burning sun, we run,
our brave hearts beating as one.
Beneath the shining moon we rest,
and in the morning we're at our best.
Together in battle we fight to win;
we'll beat the odds no matter how thin.
You're my partner through and through--
so let's use our ultimate Z-Move!
Pikachu is not totally fiction after all,
There's this cute rodent called Pika,
This Pika is Pikachu's inspiration,
Found in the foothills of Sikkim,
But the scientists think it's new,
Pika is one tiny Indian rodent,
Its standing posture, its ears,
Have been the inspiration,
Not just now but for long,
Since antiquity it's there,
Only now got discovered.
Is there a difference,
give us a reference,
between a stalker,
and a pokemon.
The monger hits news,
game spots and toss,
time lost and chaos,
with a pokemon.
The rule breakers,
cross the borders,
an inadvertently walk,
for a pokemon.
In Guatemala city .......
The teenage boy,
under the wizard,
die in the cause,
for a pokemon.
The go players,
ambushed in public,
and robbed by trees,
all for pokemon.
to get the last,
the dusts of pokeman.
No signs too,
they tire and wait,
for the nostalgia,
all for pokeman.
In New York.....
It's a no, no,
for sex offenders,
or become criminals,
All for pokeman.
Poke me man,
NO SOD OFF!
It's all crazy,
of freaks and creatures!
Poke me man!
I DARE YOU NOT!
Go find old cards,
a bank of more funds,
all for pokemon.
Poke me man!
I POCKET YOU!
As phones hide,
their lunch hunt,
the herd of pokemon.
Each morning I look through my drawers
Looking for what outfit would best
Suit me for the day.
I see anger, cynicism, pride, and crankiness.
I see sadness, frustration, and entitlement.
Then at the bottom of the drawer
I see humility.
One of my least favorite pairs of
Tight-fitting pants - ones I've gained
Too much weight to wear comfortably.
Yet, after careful deliberation
Something inside me knows I must choose
To wear them, even if they don't fit.
I may not look right,
And passersby may get a good chuckle,
But I know you will reward me with ones
That fit much better: strength, confirmation,
Restoration, and establishment.
All of which require a big leather belt.
Last night Gary Facebooked me:
"Can I ask you to be crazy with me?"
Gary said he had been flirting with this girl, May
for six months.
She wanted to see him in person tonight,
And he needed a ride.
Gary and I met 11 days ago.
Strangers brought together in the streets of Freeport by pokemon GO.
he spotted me holding my phone out from a mile away.
Lightning cracked above us
as we cryed in harmony:
"THERE IS NO SHELTER FROM THE STORM!"
My knowledge of him consists of three things.
1. He works as a security guard
Is first responder for medical emergency
Tackles felons and escorts people with restraining orders.
plays it up like he's a security guard for something mysterious
He is a security guard for Wal-mart.
2. Gary buys peoples affection.
Throws his money aimlessly
Pointing at his trophies
Prooving he too is expensive
3. To Gary,
there is nothing better to do
from 12 - 5am
Than wander Looking for pikachu.
besides visiting this May.
"A taxi would be $80
but I'd rather pay that to you, Bro."
On the drive there,
He is Squeeing, Singing,
"I've got knots in my stomach Bro."
He readily jumps from my car
"Go catch 'em Brock" I say.
When I get back to Freeport
he sends me a messege.
I think she fell asleep waiting
I'm not inside yet."
I park my car in Freeport,
Finish catching a Weedle.
"I'm on my way, stay safe."
"Man I'm so down."
"She's not coming to the door Nick."
"I'm just gonna curl up on the ground and cry."
"I've called her 24 times"
He heavily thumps his backpack into my backseat
Slumps down into my car.
"In my heart."
We stare out the window.
At the two homeless men
With no teeth
That he didn't beat.
He's holding night vision binoculars
And a clean Knife.
"I'm sorry I got you involved, Nick
I asked you to be crazy with me."
Imagine Activision and Treyarch
Making a CoD clone of Pokemon Go.
The players could search for new guns,
Trying to get the biggest collection.
PvP could be something like
Whoever has the most OP gun wins,
And the guns can be nerfed and buffed
Whenever they feel like it
To change the meta-game.
And to give it similar aesthetics
They can make the game laggy as fuck.
Children, teens, and adults alike
are finding reasons to Go outside
when not ever a reason is in sight.
It's a quest to Go.
To Go all day.
To Go all night.
To Go all the way,
some just might.
"Go-ing has become quite a sport,"
the news last night did report.
People all over, acting out of sort,
throwing imaginary balls
In their retort:
"Gotta catch 'em all!"
Go-ing in busy parking lots,
crowded department stores,
near historic flower pots,
statues, monuments, towers,
any kind of building,
from floor to ceiling.
In beds of flowers,
they Go unyielding.
They do this for hours.
on city walks,
at traffic stops,
with or without light.
Petting invisible friends.
on Snapchat and Instagram,
all in a frenzy of delight.
gives unwary passers by
quite a funny fright,
this strange sight.
The headlines read:
"People are even Go-ing in bed!"
streams a Go-er
in all his glory,
a rare legendary.
Another article read:
"Go-ing in a cemetery!"
Featuring kids Go-ing to school
in the summer.
No longer a bummer,
for Go-ing makes it cool.
Quite contrary to popular opinion,
this spectacle is being mentioned
throughout our worldy dominion.
From here to there,
people are Go-ing
Chances are, you soon
will get the urge to Go.
So be slow
to bring doom
on people's play
with the words you say.
getting out of the house
had seemed such a chore.
Now, you sprint out the door.
there was no place to go,
you lived life on the down low,
going snailishly slow.
Going places had been such a bore,
when once you did lay and play,
video games in your bed all day.
Now, you take your phone
and Go catch a Pokemon.
Let me take a peak at you,
you just caught Pikachu!
What a show!
Way to Go,
