Chuck e cheese
Sometimes, when I am at chuck e cheese with my 6 year old son
I feel like ripping the mallet out of the whack a mole game
Running and leaping on the stage down there
And beating those singing rats and weasels and shit
until there is nothing left
but a bunch of quivering nuts and bolts
I know it's not right
But either is a big cheese eating rodent walking around with his animated cohorts
So far i haven't crossed that fine line
I just sit there chewing on the pizza
Staring at the whack a mole mallet
