Disconnected

Back when I was working in a call center
They told me
To empathize with irate customers
Having problems with their internet connectivity
And I said, “Sure, no problem,”
Because I live in the Philippines
Where other countries’ slowest internet connection
Is already our fastest, top-of-the-tier monthly subscription
And so today this already sad condition
Has chosen to magnify itself into biblical proportions
Turning Summoner’s Rift
Into a world of sliding champions
With never-landing skills and immortal minions
And by then your teammates are already plotting to report you
Thinking you’re afk as all your means of communication has also betrayed you
Such a lovely day
For a dose of brutal gamer rage

Go. Moan. Scream. Tell me if you like it. Make some noise.
