Mid-afternoon, waking up in a stupor
Brewing some coffee, get the mind moving.
Throw on some clothes after a good shower
Looks like you gotta be there in an hour.

Go out to the driveway, pull out the car keys
Give your dear Susie a kiss on the cheek.
Say you'll be back in an hour or two
Right after you're done at good ol' HQ!

Drive to the haven, oh woe was he
Greeted with the face of absolute glee.
"Arin, oh Arin," exclaimed him as he cried
"Wouldn't you like to give this game a try?"

They clicked in the cartridge in the ol Snes machine
"This game be dumb Jon, yes this game be!"
Jon stared at Arin with a look quite unclean
"no no, Arin; you're just being mean!"

Despite the game, their banter was clever
The two both noticed this unlikely endeavor.
"Please, oh please Arin; just an episode or two?"
"okay fine!" said Arin. "Three parts, and we're through!"

They played and played as they bickered and bantered
as Barry took footage, holding back laughter.
You most likely wonder who these two be.
You're probably quite trumped..

"Hey I'm Grump, and I'm not so Grump!
And we're the Game Grumps!"
A poem that I wrote as a tribute to the gaming duo Arin and John from Game Grumps. Enjoy :3

This was amazing! And I know people are probably bothering you with this, but it's 'Jon' instead of 'John'.....sorry I had to!

Oh I know, but I wasn't entirely sure if he actually went with that spelling as his actual name, or just because it fit better with his channel name :XD:

Oh okay :)

You're excellent at poetry! Great flow and rhyming. Humorous too (I hope it was intended to be that way hahaha)

Plus you have a great reading voice! Really nice to listen to :D

Why thank you, miss :rose:

To be honest, I'm more of a fantasy writer, but there are certain times where an idea just smacks me upside the head :XD:

And that video could've gone WAYY better than what it turned out as. I did a much better reading of Ode to the Jon (which you can hear on my profile.)

Again, thank you very much.

Fantasy writing is one of the very best kinds ;)

I thought the video was really great, but I'll have a listen to your other reading as well. Having a relatively high-pitched Australian accent myself, I've never been the best person to read something aloud. Haha.
