Ode to Fortnite

By: Sowmith Maganti

Your greatest game of our generation

Getting a number one victory royale

Like being victorious in war


Kill after kill

Like the massacre of bulls

Sending noobs to the lobby

As fast as lightning


Left right and center

Like all the oceans in the world came together

Everything is out control

One by one as tall as the sky

Once you think you won

You get sniped faster than the blink of and eye

Infinitely running up and down hill

Noob learning

Pros engaging

And bush campers

As annoying as bees flying around you

So close but so far

Just for the victory royale

As if that is all there is to the game.
