The Flappy

Written in 2014. My tribute to the Flappy Bird video game.

The Flappy

Once upon a pipe dream nearly

As I gamed, not weak or wearily

I came upon a bird

Many others had come across before

Tap the icon, tap the start

The tiny bird on his journey embark

An impossible task I must try and fail once more

Tap, tap, tapping on the flat screen more

The bird continued forever to soar

Tap, tap, tap again

Avoid the pipe my little friend

Up and down his wings doth flap

Until the pipe

Bang, he's flat
