Ode to Destructoid

Sonnet #3

Destructoid is a truly special place
Where many people come to speak their minds
The writers mark their words with style and grace
The comments full of quick retorts in kind

Ten years have passed since it first came to be
From scrappy origins back in aught-six
A ploy to get Niero into E3
Made not for glory but instead for kicks

This spirit brought us many cherished names
Like Chad and Brad and Jim to give a few
Each gave their all to talk about these games
Part of a funny, smart, and raunchy crew

For all Destructoid is down to its core
Here’s to the last ten years and to ten more
