Thank You Poem

by William Skink

thank you for the food
we purchased from the store
thank you for the safety
this side of the door
thank you to the uniform
who didn't charge my ass
once he popped my plates
for the likelihood of grass

I'm thankful that the Bota Box
doesn't fuel my nights
doesn't pull me down to bitch and moan and cry
thank you for the puzzle pieces
falling into place
Legos, motherfucker 
these words cannot convey
the scope of what they're aiming for
and why it always fails

thank you for the wind
filling listless sails--

    Thank you for the puppet accounts
    That give me endless joy
    To spread misinformation and hate
    To all end of the United States.
    Thank you to our local Jew I troll
    with endless glee.
    I’m sure I’ll figure out this life it’s
    just a synchromysticism away.
    Until then I’ll bake conspiracies
    and flame the extremist flames.
