Pro Evolution Soccer Addiction

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 From the primordial soup, straight onto the sofa
Into the position of a highly developed controller
Opposable sore thumbs with a stiff neck and shoulder
And settings for the best possible dribble

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Eye balls kicking on a tap of fixation
– The mental options menu
Middlebrook winning the Konami cup
Is surely the pinnacle of human evolution

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Raw red ring fingers, green triangle tantrums
Trad Bricks or Tyneside
– It’s a natural selection
A fully co-ordinated machine in a joy pad mood
No time to stop, no need for food

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Evening’s penultimate multiplayer match
– Then one more game before going to bed
West London White versus Merseyside Red
A cerebral munching consol wired direct to the head

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 At night closed eyes still see
Pixellated players moving on an eyelid screen
Sleepless nights, the withdrawal graphics
And life gradually falling into 64 bits
