This joystick has served me well, fell and true the death I dealt.
Ever present instrument of death, delivered the pain my enemies felt.
Starblazer, Talon, Karateka, Threshold: all will testify its might.
Place it gently by my side, when at last I give up this fight.
After 28 years of loyal service and unpremeditated abuse, I finally cleaned and restored the joystick of my youth, that for reasons right or wrong I compare all other Human Interface Devices.
