A day at the arcade

Air Hockey Valkyries
Making Escobar goals
One young man attempts cool
In a filmy pink floral shirt
Unfortunately it buttons the wrong way

Bleeping Arcade games
Tease strollers with techno
and wild flashing lights
Fascinated children look on
with open jaws and vacant eyes

Nearby the pins fall
Knocked by colourful cannonballs
Pretty waifs throw slow spares
And upset their gorillas
Who hurl fast gutter balls

Watch out for the fast gutter balls. They get you every time.

Went to Amoeba did you?
I like the flow of this one, it's not quite conventional.

Love this. I live in a town that is filled with arcades. You captured them well.
