Today it is Thanksgiving Day
For all dead turkey’s I do pray
That you had a good life
Now you’re carved with a knife
Served on a plate as the entrée
Have a great Thanksgiving folks!

When a turkey, who yearly escapes
From his owner's Thanksgiving plate,
Was asked to reveal
Why he's never a meal
He said, "That much of a turkey I ain't!"
Note: Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November in the United States President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed this as an official holiday in 1863.
Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canucks
I'd send you a card and maybe some bucks
but I'm broke
that's no joke
Stay close to the fire and wear your mukluks
Our first lady Michelle from the white house.
Encourages healthy eating not souse.
Limbaugh cries idiot.
In the newspaper writ.
She was eating hamburgers with her spouse!
In Vale he said they were sking on snow.
Then eating ribs, he said on his show.
But how can he talk?
With his bulk hard to walk!
Having chest pains to the hospital did go!
"Food Nanny" Obama is saying,
Having barbeque won't be paying.
Have pie on Thanksgiving Day,
Said Michelle critics say,
Moderation?? To the dogs we're straying!
Turkey For Me
The turkey's our grand native bird
that eagles became
our symbol of fame
since "native" is always preferred.
Bald eagle's our symbol for sure
but turkeys each year were a lure
at markets and farms,
in fields and barns,
our Thanksgiving feast did insure.
Main course for our dinner that day,
two centuries plus, turkeys they
appeased, kept us strong,
when feasts came along,
they sacrificed their lives that way.
So it would be fair if we could
choose turkey for the common good.
Our symbol should be
Their service is misunderstood!

Fictional Fun Write—I love our Bald Eagle!
Now on this thanksgiving day
Whilst you wash your dinner away
With wine and coffee creamy topped
And listen to the music bop
I wish you all the turkey trots

Deprived pilgrim wives ruminated
On ways to get hubbies elated:
After Thanksgiving chow
Ogling men hollered “wow!”
As wet-shirted women they rated.
We all commented that the turkey was grand,
somebody saying the gravy was too bland,
we had said Grace,
stuffed our faces,
thank God for pants with elastic waist bands!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
