Day 87 prompt: Games

Once upon a time, games gathered families (or friends)
Now we have Words with Friends (or strangers)

Games were for Sunday afternoons and special occasions
Now we play wherever and whenever we’ve got wireless

We rested elbows on a table
Now we poise thumbs over keypads

The best mathematician kept a paper tally sheet
Now digital scoreboards keep running stats

Friendly banter bounced around the game board
Now competitors exchange unseen, silent smirks
