If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain. Emily Dickinson
Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world. Ralph Waldo Emerson

The day is warm,
the sun is high.
Nature beckons you
to be outside;
but you decline.
The test is big,
Approaching fast
you must study
if you wish to pass.
Though it hardly matters to you.
For there is something else,
You would much rather do.
Turn on the screen,
and enter the world
where Pokémon are free
and pokeballs are hurled.
Adventure awaits!
Excitement begins!
Tighten your cap,
Pull on your gloves,
and dive right in.
Which starter to choose?
Fire, water or grass?
Each with their advantage,
Each turning kick-butt.
Picking the one,
and your adventure’s begun.
Cities and towns,
gym battles and badges
plot twists and turns,
all those stupid tall grasses.
Epic battles with friends,
Or an arch nemesis.
Each win a grand boast,
Each loss a travesty.
People laugh and scoff.
But what does it matter?
For you, my friend,
are a Pokémon master.
