Ode to MS Flop..er... Flight

Ode to MS Flop..er.. Flight

MS embarked on a grand new vision
But made a mistake in their development decision.

Instead of a franchise based on flight simulation
They went for a Game based on a bit of aviation.

Though the advance PR did seem to impress
it was without regard to their past success.

Given the feedback posted here*,
I shall not weep one single tear.

Thanks! I think it's still missing something, though... Ponder, ponder, ponder...

Ode to MS Flop..er.. Flight (V2.0)

MS embarked on a grand new vision
But made a mistake in their development decision.

Instead of a franchise based on flight simulation
They went for a Game based on a bit of aviation.

Though the advance PR did seem to impress
it was without regard to their past success.

Freeware addon makers, they chose to ignore
Want new aircraft? See the Microsoft Store!

Window Live was the path they chose
and now, Flight's hanger door shall close
