“How the hell did I lose that fight?”

Was a phrase that I heard last night.

My mate just could not win the match,

He kept begging for COD to get a “patch”.

“That gun needs to get nerfed, man!”

He shouted just as the game began.

His game seemed to be getting worse,

It won’t be long before he starts to curse.

“Everything seems to be going wrong!”

Turning his complaint into a song.

It didn’t sound like it was going right,

But the end of the tunnel was full of light.

“I can’t believe we won that game.”

Just because he couldn’t aim.

Those were his words not mine,

Which made it my time to shine.

“I didn’t know you did that well!”

During the game I couldn’t tell.

My friend shouted so loud, that

He dominated the party chat.

“How the hell did I lose that fight?”

Was a phrase that I heard last night.

In fact I heard it quite a lot,

Everytime my friend got shot.
