Wishing you all a very happy Fall Break!!!

Here’s a piece that was recently written by Jake D, a 6th grade student.

Look what happens when you’re NOT playing Fortnite…

Fortnite Fury
Jake D.

I kept looking at the screen, soaking up all the fiction
But soon it was clear to me the game had become an addiction
Let’s do the math, it wasn’t science fiction
It was simply time to come to a deciding conviction (X2)

It was just a game
But still I got inflamed
Blaming by bad aim
But it’s all still the same
At the end of the day a shame
So many minutes not wasted
But not enjoyed
It annoyed me, I was destroyed
For God’s sake, it was only an android!
First it started with restriction
Then a little addiction
That grew too fast
Even after my attempts in the past
I’m just sad that the fun with the friends wouldn’t last

I kept looking at the screen, soaking up all the fiction
But soon it was clear to me the game had become an addiction
Let’s do the math, it wasn’t science fiction
It was simply time to come to a deciding conviction (X2)

Jake! Tonight! Will you be online?
No, I gotta do my paragraph shaper outline
It’s not the designs that put me on cloud nine
It’s the simple fact that with friends I’m fine
I’ll be looking in a book
while you’re still on the hook
At the new updates you’ll be beaming
No, I won’t be streaming
Over the break
Sure, homework will make me ache
But at least I won’t be awake at daybreak
Looking at the evolved Loot Lake
And I’m sorry
That I’m not going starry over the new gun
But I guess I’m just the only one
Who really doesn’t care anymore
And no, I don’t need a mentor to get a win
Where you been? Playing games making your brain thin?
I’m not done with these games of war
But this is for sure
I’m not coming back until I can assure a working cure

I kept looking at the screen, soaking up all the fiction
But soon it was clear to me the game had become an addiction
Let’s do the math, it wasn’t science fiction
It was simply time to come to a deciding conviction (X2)
