Try to pick a movie,
A weekend game I play,
Searching, clicking, cursing
At the icons on display

Action and adventure
Sci-Fi tried and true,
Drama filled with heartache
Frozen, Ralph, or Pooh

Do I warp my brain on violence
Eyes closed more than they’re open,
Or pick based on the actor
Nicole or maybe Morgan

Comedy’s an option
Melissa makes me laugh,
but maybe that’s too mindless,
An Oscar win, perhaps

Romances never fail me
At least not when on film,
But God, there’s just so many
That the list can overwhelm

So every week it ends the same
With pounding my head,
I watch two hours of trailers
And stumble off to bed
