Poem: Catacombs


The poem catacombs pictures kids raised by computer games and living in their parents basements doing nothing but rotting on the latest massive online multiplayer games.  It is a dark poem faulting both parents and the children who end up in this state.


These advent children

governed by innocuous design

gelatinous and erroneous

weathering decisions furnished

by disconnected catatonic parents

the spark of virility sapped daily

by another game to placate life

a parents home now reduced

to little more than catacombs

-Poem by Justin Germino
