The Lag Poem

This is a silly little poem that I’ve had stuck in my head ever since I thought about lag seriously. Please note that I know this poem isn’t exactly magnificent.

Lag, lag, it’s a terrible thing, it will make your head go DING DING!

Lag, lag, it’s a terrible thing, it’s when you have a three digit ping.

Lag, lag, why do you taunt us so? It makes little kids scream: “NO, NO!”

Lag, lag, why do you taunt us so? Look what you’ve done to Halo!

Lag, lag, won’t you go away? For my broadband connection; I payed!

Lag, lag, won’t you go away? You’re ruining my special gaming day!

Lag, lag, you’re every developers nightmare. What’s this lag switches?! Don’t you dare!

Lag, lag, you’re every developers nightmare. Stop it! You’re making me pull my hair!

Lag, lag, how tired I am of thee. Can’t we just settle this, with a decree?

Lag, lag, how tired I am of thee. My ears are starting to bleed, listening to kids screaming who haven’t hit puberty.

Lag, lag, you’re like an annoying little spot. What’s this? Miss!? It was a headshot!

Lag, lag, you’re like an annoying little spot. No matter how many times I apply cream, it’s bound to make me scream.

Lag, lag, game developers will soon turn you into dust. That should teach you a lesson, for making my rank go bust!

Lag, lag game developers will soon turn you into dust. You’ll be as famous as a piece of insignificant crust.

Lag, lag, you’ll be gone for sure. Keep that in mind, while you’re making us endure.

Lag, lag, you’ll be gone for sure. The world shall kick your butt, out our virtual door!

Now I want to know what YOU think about lag, and any crazy encounters with it.

  1. haha, nice poem… lag is the all time greatest enemy for the online gamer. its probably not as bad now as it was in the past.. I remember playing starcraft over a 56K modem and just getting toasted with lag vs a full 8 player game! soooooooo annoying.

  2. You need to put this on Digg, man. My favorite line is the one about the headshot. XD

    Being I run dial-up, even games on BYOND have a .2 ping, which is enough to play with slight effectiveness, but still puts me at a disadvantage. I swear, when I get a fast connection, I’m going to log onto GOA and FREAKING DOMINATE!!

  3. A poem on a gaming website? Awesome 😛 – who says we’re not sophisticated? Anyway I don’t play many online games (which seems to make me a bit of an outcast) so obviously I don’t suffer many problems with lag :P. I can understand the frustration though.

  4. dug the digg, tweet the twitter, haha. Yep, lag is the worst, i remember playing starcraft on dailup back in the day, be deep in a game then suddenly an ally lags out. Such is life.
