A Very Charge Shot!!! Christmas


(Inspired by Fallout 3, which I gleefully play on my new Xbox 360.)

‘Twas the night before Christmas,
I added some rum
to a half a mug of egg nog
And looked for some

Stym packs! I bled from the ear
That last mutant’s gunshot
Came an inch too near. I couldn’t find any!
No pill, no fix! But I did find plenty

of squirrels on sticks. Gamy, for sure
and glow-in-the dark. But quite delectable
when you’ve been – hark!
A rustle of grass!

Could it be friend, foe,
runaway father? A ten-foot mutant
to drill me with holes? Alas,
merely some rats,
cross-bred with moles.

Christmas in Fallout:
a dreary affair. Half-drunk
and playing in my underwear.

Oblivion with a gun
is still more fun
than that Asian chick
flying through the air.
