I used to be more fun,

Before the war, before

The wars watched on TV

From comfortable couches.

With skin more taut

And belly more refined,

I used to be more fun

Before I knew the torque

Required to snap an

Arm bone. These days

I sneeze at the sound of

Violence, turn up the

Earbuds, podcasts keep

You at bay. I used to be

More fun, before fun

Became the default.
