The lights have been turned down, the speakers silenced, and the journalists are still complaining. E3 has come and gone. What better way to celebrate the end of the “Superbowl of Video Games” than with bad poetry? And seriously, let’s never use that expression again.

The Sony E3 press conference went a little something like this:

Jack Tretton was first to the stand,
With visionary David Cage in hand.
A game called Beyond,
Ellen Page, her hair gone.
Play Beyond?” Now, I understand!

PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale
Makes characters enemies and pals.
Everyone knows,
It’s Super Smash Bros.
A good game to copy, I allow.

There is no IP that is hotter,
So how can we douse it with water?

Starting off at the base of the foot.
Larger than life,
Mythical strife.
Just wait until you see its boot.

Showing the end of the human race.
Trouble for two.
What do we do?
Of course! Shoot ’em all in the face!
