This poem is based on an anime I was watching online, basically I realised that even though I love it and it makes me laugh so much, it was stopping me from doing homework and studying so I had to tone it down a bit :)

I was incredibly bored when I wrote this :)


The other day I saw something, which made me want to laugh
There was no intense storyline, nor playback from the past
No one had to die, and no one ran away
In fact, nothing really happened, but I laughed anyway
It made me stop to think, if I could ever find
Something that could make me, as carefree as their kind
For all the people that I watched make jokes and act their acts
They didn't really think much, about the truth or facts
There were no magic dragons, or knights in shining armour
Nor superheros, or maidens with some ungodly drama
The characters I met, they made me laugh so much
I really enjoyed watching, while I ate my lunch
One was 'simply fabulous', a queen among his men
I laughed as he dramatised, superbly till the end
Afterwards, I did not feel like homework or studies
But then I told myself, why I've got other buddies
These buddies that I have, they all go to school
I would never see them, unless I went there too
I've just started watching, and I know I sound hooked
I really do not want, my brain to end up cooked
I enjoy doing other things, I read do sport and play
I can always come back to these funny people, any another day
I got carried away, but it really made me laugh
And now when I feel like watching, for long periods of time
I really must remember that there is a whole world out there for me to find.
ATTEMPTED MORAL: Don't remain hooked on your computer, the tv or video games. You need to get out in the world as well because those things are not going anywhere and will always be there when you come back.
