Thump... thump... thump... the noise echoes through the room.
I turn, is he to the left? No, to the right?
I don't know where he is, but I know he spells my doom.
I hear her voice, the girl turned beast...

"Mr. Bubbles," she quietly starts, speaking in two voices,
"Can you hear the angels, Mr. Bubbles?"
I hear the footsteps getting louder... hm, choices.
Searching through my guns, I try to decide.

Revolver, with bullets to pierce his suit?
Grenade launcher, with explosive rounds?
As I think, I hear the thump of his boot,
I must hurry, he'll be upon me soon.

I pull out my shotgun, its barrel strong and thick.
Pressing against a pillar, I check my ammo.
Explosive shells, that should do the trick.
I switch my shells, dropping the extra.

I feel the ground shake under his weight...
Then another noise, a buzzing sound...
I smile slightly, whispering, "You're late"
The hacked drone hovers above me.

My shotgun, my drone... my plasmids, I forgot.
I lower my shotgun and concentrate deeply.
My left hand catches fire... hope he likes it hot.
I release my concentration, and raise my gun.

My hand's still hot, though the flames have passed.
It's time... I spin out of cover, aiming quickly.
I stare at the Big Daddy, and we both freeze... it won't last.
I glance down to the girl at his feet.

Her eyes are glowing, her skin is dirty.
I stare at the bloody drill...
Two seconds pass... feels more like thirty.
I snap out of my daze and pull the trigger.

Sparks mix with blood, the girl screams, I hear him roar.
My blood runs cold, my heart nearly stops.
Funny, seemed like such a good plan before.
I fire again, then again, then Daddy steps forward.

I release my left hand from my gun.
Flames explode, and I force them forward.
The Big Daddy catches fire, have I won?!
I don't take chances, I fire the last from my clip.

Another roar, I can't believe he's alive...
I turn to run, throwing my gun behind me.
I don't hear footsteps... then a surprise.
Surging pain, all through my body.

I fly through the air, from the force of the blow.
Shots explode as I try to recover.
I glance back at my drone, look at it go!
Dodging the Big Daddy's drill, it fires quickly.

This raises my spirits, and I get to my feet.
Suddenly, he remembers me, and charges.
As he nears, I can still feel the flame's heat.
This can work, just need to try harder.

I throw more flames, and they hit him hard.
He roars, missing me as he pats at the flame.
I glance at his suit, it's badly charred.
Now is my chance, and I must take it.

Quickly pulling out my revolver, I take careful aim.
He slams his fist into my head as I pull the trigger.
I scream in pain, he does the same.
I stare at him as I slowly lose consciousness.

My eyes start to flicker closed as I watch him stumble.
Smacking trash cans and garbage, he bleeds slowly.
Finally, he falls to his knees, then tumbles.
I feel some happiness as I watch him finally die...

My sight begins to go, as a Splicer grabs the girl, what a capture...
Well, I guess this is going to be my last day in the city of Rapture...
First off, I'd like to apologize for the long read. Just started writing and... couldn't stop. But, hopefully, it's good all the way through, and it'll make for a nice rhyming read, long though it may be.

This is another video game poem, but this time it's Bioshock! I had a lot of fun with this one, more fun than I had with my Portal one, so hopefully it'll be at least as well liked. Enjoy!

I like it! ;^w^ Vewwy scawwy! As always, great rhyme scheme.
VG-Zoodle Featured By Owner May 20, 2008
Aww, thankies! Though I think the rhyme scheme is a lil' odd. For my next one, I'mma try a scheme that's more traditional, but I don't really know what (or when) my "next one" will be. o_o
