Figured It Out

They sniggered at doubt
and figured it out.
Or rather the one who
began it all did.
The one who first
realized nothing was hid.
You mean you discovered
the one who began it?
Oh, not just the one
who began it but ran it.
The one who had figured
out everything everywhere
all had been made
of the same exact thing.
Once you knew that,
you could render yourself
into continents, taffy
or rhinestony bling.
Or bring forth a family
and pet from your thigh
on a string. He walks

around now congregating
new pow-pows he summons
from somewhere where
nobody ever learned
take doesn’t also
mean bring.
