Ode to SNES



I plugged you in,
You seemed to work,
Until I discovered,
A little quirk.

Lines appeared
Upon the screen,
They made me sad
At what they did mean.

Earthbound, Batman,
Aladin and Racecar,
All worked slightly,
But not enough by far.

I shall not give up,
I refuse to, I do!
For I love you so much
That it’s almost not true.

So hang in there, SNES,
My consoling friend,
Don’t let this be
Your one final end.

  1. Thank god for illegal emulators, when your fragile antique Super Nintendo finally bites the dust you’ll be about to enjoy all your favorites for free! You can even buy classic controls that work with your PC to make it 100% authentic. Don’t be sad, steal your childhood back!

    True, and emulators I have [thank god indeed for them], but nothing beats using the actual uncomfortable controller and looking at the tv screen. Aaaah, bliss.
