A Thankful Turkey

Written by Gail DeBole

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.

For Canadian Eyes Only

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

Healthy Moderation

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

Turkey For Me

The turkey's our grand native bird
America's finest—absurd
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
Thanksgiving Turkey!
Their service is misunderstood!

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

Overlooked Tradition

Deprived pilgrim wives ruminated
On ways to get hubbies elated:
After Thanksgiving chow
Ogling men hollered “wow!”
As wet-shirted women they rated.

Our Thanksgiving Pants

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!
