Everything 80's And Tense Dangerous Gaming

Ernest Cline is known or not known
For his screenplay of the movie Fanboy
I did not know this and do not care
Ready Player One I care about
This Blitzkrieg romp through the 80's
Music and All Things Geeky is a screamer
Had no idea I knew so much trivia
But then again I was alive and it was the 80s
This near future landscape is frightening
The trailer park burbscape with
Trailers and RVs stacked high
Just too frighteningly possible
The pages blister your fingers as they turn
The action is non stop
Most of the action is in the "virtual" world
But tense and high stakes none the less
The protagonists is absolutely my kind of guy
Young, Socially Naive and Very Bright
What's the story
The designer of the OASIS
The virtual world most people
Spend most of their time in, dies
Who ever figures out his game gets it all
Individuals, groups and evil corporations
One and all are vying for the prize
Mega Bucks and Mega Control of OASIS

Apropos of our times
Ry Cooder's newest
A bopping commentary on our times
Pull Up Some Dust And Sit Down
