Thanks For The Thanks, But No Thanks - Poem by Adam Parker

Altruistically assisting
Presuming I do help,
To bring us into surplus
Before the month runs out,
Fiscal obliteration
Resounds inside of thee
Transubstantiation
Your wealth relies on me...

Thanks for the thanks, but no thanks
Gratitude should be sincere.

Exhalation of your worries
As you offer up your hand,
“Thank you! For doing this!
You know you are the man? ”
A petulant retreat
To avoid transparency,
Of tearing inner conflict
Nearing calamity...

Thanks for the thanks, but no thanks
Indebted shamelessly!

Requesting more of I
Then I really have to give,
It’s just a job to me
But the future for your kids,
Insightfully placated
Accepting honour-bound,
Words of praise and thanks
Opinion turned around...

Thanks for the thanks, but no thanks
Understanding’s now austere.
Thanks for the thanks, its worth more
Then money, sweat and tears.
