Switch Switch by Kenn Nesbitt
My little brother took my Switch
to stream a game or two on Twitch
But, when he tried to turn it on,
my Switch would not play Pokémon.

My Switch would not play Mario,
or Donkey Kong, or Yu-Gi-Oh!,
or Minecraft, or Monopoly,
or Captain Toad, or Pimkin 3,
Jurassic Park, or Kingdom Hearts,
or any game with racing karts,
or Shovel Knight, or Dragon Ball,
or, really, any game at all.

He gave it back and said ‘It’s broke,’
I had to giggle at my joke.
I switched my Switch and played a trick.
I’d given him my painted brick.
