What has america come to?
When video game violence is all that we see
And younger kids try so hard to be like
The savages and killers killing
Just the thought of that can be really chilling
That violence will be a public ‘norm’
Reprocussions shown in the dorms
Soon the world will be destroyed
And not from an astroid
But it will be from the kids
Imitating their favorite videos and games
So this will become our fate
The end though doesn’t have a set date
So we must stop this before its too late
Or it may just be our last days here
America may be strong but it wont last
So when kids start their spree
There will be destruction, violence, and death to no end
And there may be no way to amend
The death of America
So act now parents before its too late
Time to act now or you will face your fate

what inspired me to write this poem was the fact that it seems like people are becoming more violent these days because of video games

Yep we definitely need a wake up call and its not from video games ,but poor family structure and lack of gaurdian/parental spervision.
