my favorite game

"Deflection" is my favorite game
i play with one and all
i hope you like to play the same
we're going to have a ball

we face off and with our words
the other's shield we break
so try your best, i'll do the same
our very lives at stake

the best part is, a mirror is
used for each one's shield
i do my best to break it, but
yours never seems to yield

there is one rule that i have found
with absolute certainty
the very words i throw at you
reflect back upon me

so grab your shield and join me
we'll play if you so choose
i keep playing until i win
    i always lose
