A Thanksgiving Prayer

It’s that time of year again, so here’s my first published-in-a-crappy-anthology poem:

A Thanksgiving Prayer

Thank you for letting my ancestors

rape and pillage this land.

Thank you for making the natives so naive

and letting us slaughter them all.

Thank you for creating slaves to

prepare this bounteous harvest.

Thank you for the machines that

demolish and kill so efficiently.

Thank you for the plagues that

kill off the undesirables.

Thank you for giving parents freedom

from responsibility and blame.

Thank you for the knowledge that

we really are better than them.

Thank you for widespread ignorance so

the poor don’t rise up in revolution.

Thank you for the taboos that

keep incest and abuse private.

Thank you for justice to

protect those who can afford it.

Thank you for the democracy that

lets us blame the other guy.
