The POTW: Verse Til It Hurts
This week's poem was inspired by events occurring in the world of computer games, wherein, as many of you are probably aware, I am employed. The gist of what happened this weekend is that a regular person was chosen, more or less at random, to act as the permanent supreme high god of all gods in a new game being made by noted genius/crackpot Peter Molyneux. This was basically a marketing stunt, but kind of a neat idea as well. God, as it turns out, is an eighteen-year-old kid from Edinburgh. This is more or less what I, looking at the world we live in, have suspected all along. Perhaps Molyneux and company are not establishing a new truth, but revealing an old one.
God Likes Toast
God eats sandwiches on toast
The given name of God is Bryan
Praise be to Bryan, a regular guy
The lord of all of time and space
