Thank You

The drama plays this rhyme as the rain falls in Baton Rouge,

I wanna take the time to explain all my gratitude,

A memory about days where a wish fed the fodder,

A centipede without legs or a fish dead in water,

The reward is the vision to afford for a minute with a lord or a lynchpin in a broken hall of dreams,

The support that is given is a fort to the living or a gourd to the stricken on a golem’s Halloween,

Lights matter with suns due back and reptilians sucking bones,

I’d rather have one true fan than a million fucking drones,

Clone an ox or a stray, crow or fox, and the fate of a leaning gate or bleeding fist,

Throw a box in the bay so I thought that I’d say that I appreciate you reading this,

A look alike is shook and blind or pushed behind the face of doom,

A book to find if you’re hooked on rhyme and took the time to praise the moon,

To breathe when cold and flare with doubt or cost heart when you’re forty,

I see the soul and tear it out like Boxcar from the story,

The vain will fall in stinky piss, and pray they find the proof of life,

I thank you all for seeing this, and taking time to do it right,

From Columbine to vacant lots, to swallow rhymes and fake a pill,

A holorime to shape your thoughts, a hollow mind to take the steel,

Rewards for the killer in the dreams of the punished when they’re stepping to me too,

Support is a pillar to the beams of the artist when indefinitely doomed,

A mayday to the zombies when our forty guns are nary drums,

A payday in the Rockies when the morning sun has barely come,

Pigs bound to shoot their eagle when their ego breaks the habit,

Big Sal salutes the people, for the people make it happen,

Faux stakes of land and hollow trees, people knew this filled the pen,

Go take my hand and follow me, we will do this ‘til the end.

About to head into surgery in an hour, so I may be out of commission for a couple days.💪

I wrote this a month or two ago.

I just wanted to take the time to properly thank every single person who has even mildly shown love for my poetry. I have hustled my ass off trying to make a name for myself, and it is because of you wonderful ones why I was able to accomplish something positive in the world.

I will never act too good to talk or engage with you guys. Thank you for your everlasting support everyone. I only hope to keep your interest up until my last breath leaves this husk. I am proud to see you all hone your skills as best as you can. I feel like I helped build a wall in Rome. So, until next time, SMILE!
