I can’t get enough of this Pokémon Go.
The fever is on me
and starting to grow.
This game is amazing!
I thought you should know.
There’s nothing I want to do more.

I play on the playground.
I play in the park.
I play in the daytime.
I play after dark.
I’m constantly playing,
but I should remarkremark to say casually, as in making a comment.
this game sure is making me sore.

While playing today
I ran into a wall.
I stumbledstumble to strike the foot against something, as in walking or running, so as to stagger or fall; trip. and fell down
the stairs at the mall.
I tripped on the street and
had such a bad fall,
I probably fracturedfracture to break or crack. my toe.

My forehead is hurting.
My bottom feels bad.
This tripping and falling
is making me mad.
The game is amazing,
but maybe I’ve had
enough of this Pokémon Go.
