Zombie Sonnet 5

I came home for Christmas break and
You said you had a new game I had to play.
You said I’d love it, and of course you were right.
A co-op zombie shooter? Duh.
Soon we were playing through all
The campaigns together and Mom was
Getting tired of hearing “Boomer! Smoker!”
Being shouted in the living room when
She was trying to enjoy wrapping presents.
But now you’re gone.
I have the sequel on my laptop but
It’s not the same with a keyboard instead of a controller.
And it’s too weird to play through the game
Alone.
