Billy The Sixteen-Year-Old Kid

I’m a Video Kingpin, a Dangerous Dude
A Carnival Killer, I am
The Game and The Game is
Me

To vanquish my anguish I kill
Will kill, all kill, must kill
Down

Face to face my enemies meet
Race no face in cyber-space
Blast

All sense—ding, ding, ding! ! !
My anger implode ex-plode
BOOM!

Game’s over. I win.
You lose.
Jack.
