Funny Games

Do you dare disrupt the universe?

Do you dare to play a funny game with me?


Easy game, life is.

Go to a right school,  a right university,

Have a right career, then a right husband.

The next right destination is going to be the right coffin!


Funny game, life could be. 

Here is very likely the script written by the screenwriter.

"Can I borrow four eggs?"

"Yes, please come in."

This is the beginning of the Funny Games.

Isn't it funny? 

A game that is pre-written, and pre-made in 1997.


There is only one rule about funny games.

You cannot tell the ending from the beginning. 

Come on, let us start the game!

我由kubrick逛過來,不知道你看過Trainspotting這部電影沒,你的文字和以下這段很像^^ 人生本來如此!!
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: [narrating] Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life... But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin' else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you've got heroin?

I just watched the trailer. Wow, it is so similar but not exact to my first part of the poem.

If people have the consciousness they are actually choosing their life, it is better to accept it as it is.

My poem is not all about choosing life.

thanks for reading and leaving comment!
