My Kingdom Of Shit

Copyright 3-6-2017

Steve Lake

 

Within my kingdom of shit

I stand in awe

One maybe two items of each

Stacked so high some are just out of reach

 

Like rings on a tree each one marks

My progression in time from then to present day

I added another building

Room for more crap I save

 

Once in my kingdom of shit

All I had was quality made

Never breaking it would stay

Each one said made in the U.S.A.

 

But now my boy toys all break

The Items are disguised to look real but they are all fake

No longer branded American made

Only one or two uses and they no longer play

 

So now my kingdom of shit is invaded

Like an army from the east

Made in China is what it says

Having to repurpose each

Bringing them back from the dead

 

So now my kingdom of shit is divided

I now sort my crap by origin

Antiques made in the U.S.A.

And all the other crap from countries of my dismay

 

One pile of crap is small

One pile of crap is tall

The small pile is worth thousands of dollars

The tall pile is not worth my trouble

 

The small pile of crap I clean

Polishing with rags until they gleam

Displayed on lighted shelves

Made in the U.S.A. my pride

What else?

 

Then a task for a year I vie

The tall pile of crap I sort till I cry

Upon dingy shelves I stack what works

What doesn’t work I shake and go berserk

 

In the middle of my kingdom is my purest crap

From other countries it comes but quality it lacks

I sit within its shadow on my chair in awe

All that money wasted I begin to bawl

 

Then like all good kings

I reign upon my kingdom of shit

Off to my printer for labels I make

Saying remade in the U.S.A. is all it will take

 

Like war I prepare my best for battle

Choosing each weapon from my lighted shelves

My grinder, my welder, my saw and drill

Then to the liquor cabinet for some spirits and a handful of pills

 

For three days and night at war I toiled

The clanking of weapons the war wages on

Against the darkness of night my welder and torch flickered

Like lightning warning of a storms intent

 

Around my feet laid little piles of crap in defeat

Grinding off the China’s stencil eliminating its discrepancy

Creating my new monster from the old into better crap

A special place between the lighted and dingy shelves I stacked

 

Upon this shelf I mounted a plaque

It simply said repurposed with three hammer taps

For each tap a letter was laid

It now says remade in the U.S.A.

 

Now upon my kingdom of crap I reign

No more crap in the dumpster it all stays

Like elves in Santa’s workshop at play

Making my crap better the U.S.A. way!
