    Disclaimer: This is what happens when you are laying in bed awake, not able to sleep, thinking about pinball!

    This is a poem I wrote and it is just a starting point. There are so many more machines and pinball terms to honor so read my poem and add in your 4 line verse in your post and lets see what we as the pinball community can come up with

    Another game to play!

    Today was a great day
    But now its late and in bed I lay
    Tomorrow's going to be another great day
    Cause there's another game of pinball to play

    There's another ball to plunge
    And skill shot to make
    Another target to nail
    An outlane to shake

    Another insert to light
    And spinner to rip
    A max bonus to collect
    Another kickback to trip

    Another drop target to hit
    And a warning to take
    More drains to save
    That satisfying ramp shot to make

    But its getting late
    Now past 2 am
    But tomorrow I plan
    To play pinball again

    There's another extra ball to be had
    A nudge to redirect
    A captive ball to hit
    And a super jackpot to collect

    Another scoop to nail
    A secret button to use
    Another multiball to collect
    A loose tilt bob to abuse

    Another video mode to gain
    A live catch, a slap save
    Another post pass
    Or maybe shatz an inlane

    Seriously it is time, I must get to sleep
    I close my eyes and drift away
    Knowing tomorrow there's
    Another game of pinball to play

    Another snake to charm
    And lamp to spin
    Magna-save to use
    Maybe a wizard mode to win

    Another damsel to rescue
    And troll to bomb
    A jukebox to shoot
    And pick another song

    Another whirlpool to ride
    A bigfoot to escape
    Another doctor to collect
    A dalek to exterminate

    More atomic blasters to deploy
    And saucers to destroy
    More monkey brains to eat
    Another doctor to cheat

    But for now I must go to sleep
    Close my eyes and have good dreams

    I do so knowing tomorrow is another day
    And a great one I know
    Cause there's
    Another game of pinball to play

    Damn pinball machine!
    Why do you tempt me so much?
    Fine, let's play again.

    Sorry, that's a haiku

    Nice looking machine.
    Would love to have one.
    Wish I were closer.
    Good luck with the sale.

    Pulsing lush color
    Sparkling white spots
    Rapid Flashing brilliance
    Electrifying black knight

    Another game from Jersey Jack I wait
    Should I continue to hold on, or should I abate
    I begin to wonder, will I ever get it, I swell up in fear
    But I am sure when my Hobbit arrives, everyone will Stand up and cheer!

    The game has died
    It is no use
    Everything is out
    Just a fuse

    Once again I prepaid for a pin
    That didn't get built again
    I don't know what could be worse
    Than having this pinball curse
    Now having all the money from my purse
    They better produce or there gonna need a hearse
    Not settling on being jilted
    Those mothers are gonna get tilted
    And so it goes
    Ripped off by these pro's
    My only regret
    Is the pin i'll never get

    There once was a pin from Nantucket
    Whose balls were stored in a bucket
    They were all dirty and rusty
    Smell was musty
    But good enough for a NIB stern, ****it.

    A larger fuse in place

    Is that smoke I smell
