My Heartfelt Acceptance Speech

I would like to thank the members of the Academy
I say, “I would like to,” but
None of them voted for me

I would like thank my choreographer
Who would have known that “Judgment at Nuremburg”
Could be made into an interpretive dance

I would like to thank my parents
Without their support
I might have ended up
A pseudononymous Internet poetry blogger

I would like to think my teachers and coaches
Who taught me so many great things
Except for having to read “Lord of the Flies”
And having to run laps
On second thought, forget the part about teachers and coaches

I would like to thank WordPress
For giving all of us a platform
From which to launch ourselves
Into the lake of publishing
Which, it turns out,
Has two feet of water in it
