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!

The First Thanksgiving

Thankful and blessed are we today
1621 started this holiday
the Mayflower trip
Squanto's Indian tips
thank God he was bilingual by the way!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! :)

My Thanksgiving Poem

My Thanksgiving Poem

We re giving God thanks for the creation.
Of America that is another new nation;
Happiness existed;
Love persisted,
And there now will be a big celebration.

Get out of my way
That's what I say 
When making my way to the table
And after some meat, stuffing and treats
I'll walk away if I am able

Happy Thanksgiving everyone
and if you do not celebrate it in you country
I'll just have to have your slice of pie

Horn Christmas Season Poem

Horn Christmas Season Poem

Soldiers sailed home from across the sea;
They did protect and defend you and me,
So here at home we were safe and sound;
Our freedom and liberty flowing all around.

How brave and honorable they had been;
Integrity and independence did defend;
Were returning home as a loyal winner;
Enjoy with family a Thanksgiving dinner.

Delightful Christmas returned from behind;
Chris Cringle had come courteous and kind;
He was seen bending down on each knee
Placing many gifts under decorated tree.

Should have seen deer pulling slick sleigh,
From high up in the clear air and far away;
Came to our homes with many more gifts,
And our souls and spirits surely always lifts.

Always is season when we want to inspire,
Whole wide world with all of its entire;
From us happy feelings pour and pour,
While we worship God more and more.

Charlie and Caren at the parade

Charlie and Caren at the Thanksgiving parade
Eyes pop, agog at the wonderous cavalcade
The bedazzling queen
Of the rodeo scene
Wearing crimson of Curiously clashing shades

More Characters come - a mesmerizing mermaid
Her tail, twisted teal on aqua brocade
Long seaweed hair is keen
To adorn with sardines
A Cartoon come to life in a costume home-made

The final platoon's music arrives to invade
With brass horn harmony ringing, perfect pitch played
The high school bands Careen
'Round horses plops o'green
Marching in step to honor turkey day's Crusade.
