"Virtual!" (by Joe DiMino)

Video games—
How did we ever
Live without them?
Virtual reality!—
Sure beats
What you can’t solve
Or conquer in the real…
A game you get to try again
Or throw it out;
Not like spouses
And children:
One will contrive to take
Everything you own—
While the latter, more merciful,
Will simply poison you
For the inheritance;

Always virtual for some!—
A monitor
But a novel experience…
