GBOSNES: Triton’s SNES inside a Gameboy, 2008

The graveyard draws the living still,
But never anymore the dead.
The verses in it say and say:
” The ones who living come today
To read the stones and go away
Tomorrow dead will come to stay.”

In a Disused Graveyard
Robert Frost


Triton’s SNESp Super Nintendo Portable, 2006

Wheel the wild dance
While lightnings glance
And thunders rattle loud
And call the brave
To bloody grave
To sleep without a shroud

From my hour of birth;
Upon my buried body lie
Lightly, gentle earth

Death is a dialogue between
The spirit and the dust
“Dissolve,” says Death
The Spirit:
“Sir, I have another trust.”

Death Is A Dialogue Between

Sing o’er Horace
for ere long
Death will come and mar the song
Then shall Wilson and Gotiere
Never sing or play more here

A Lyric to MirthRobert Herrick


Maniac_Man’s m64 Nintendo 64 Portable, 2008

So then thou hast lost
the dregs of life
The prey of worms
my body being dead;
The coward conquest of a wretch’s knife
Too base of thee to be remembered
But be contented when that fell arrest

Alone of all on earth, unknown
The cause, but none are near to pry

Years to come seemed waste of breath
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life
this death

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death
William Butler Yeats


John, Doe’s Portable Playstation Project (PPP), 2005

How strange it is
that man on earth should roam,
And lead a life of woe
but not forsake
His rugged path;
nor dare he view alone
His future doom which is
but to awake

On DeathJohn Keats


Gizmo255’s Super Nintendo Portable, 2004

And I guard thy gates in fear
Of words thou canst not hear
Of peril and jeopardy
Of signs thou canst not see
And thou sayest ’tis ill that I came?



Evil LandRudyard Kipling



ExtremeSonic’s SNES Portable V1, 2007

Lastly I ask, now old and chill
If aught of him remain unperished still
And find, in me alone
a feeble spark
Dying amid the dark
