Thomas Turkey Avoids the Dreaded Axe

Tom Turkey got lost 'midst the teeming flock,

   Thus, avoiding the dreaded chopping block!

      Hunkering down spared his life,

         Averting the carving knife!

            He now recovers from traumatic shock!

Turkey Dinner Turn Tail and Run

A wild gobbler strutted into the woods,
it did not see all the camouflage hoods, 
straight into a turkey shoot; 
trips over a gnarly root, 
with ruffle feathers made off with its goods.

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

Which Turkey To Take - a Thanksgiving Limerick

The man had a tough choice to make
Which of the birds should he take?
Both turkeys looked good
But he thought that he should
Take the jenny instead of the jake.

aged wings with fairy sound

swirling colors gather round

glide without care

past our sad stare

final rest upon the ground.

Thanksgiving In the Mirror

With "plenty" this culture's endowed 
Bad outcomes are never allowed!
But nature's stealthy
And notes for the wealthy
Silver linings come with a cloud

A Not So Good Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a day to be grateful,
Not a day to be grumpy or hateful.
But a burnt pumpkin pie,
And a turkey that's dry,
Might make it hard to be elateful.*

*(I realize elateful is not a word, but I claim poetic

Turkey Day For a Lame Duck

Now pouts the ex-president Trumpty
his turkey-day gravy’s all lumpy
he’s down on his luck
for he’s a lame duck
his a** voters threw in the dumpty

Happy T Day

Happy day of giving thanks to all Ameri-cans
enjoy your feasting-football-family, party-hearty plans
even to you
who do tofu
instead of turkey (those birds, your biggest fans)

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.

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

The Gobble-Oscopy

The “gobble-oscopy” 

When the chef succumbed to his bottle
twenty turkeys escaped without gobble
took an apple and stuck it
where no one would pluck it
so the chef giving chase could but hobble

Turkey Day

Let’s thank God for this turkey day
But all of the birds have runaway
They must of seen the axe 
Don’t think they could relax
Left all their feathers in the hay

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!

Turkey Gobbler

There once was a turkey named Tom
Always persecuted by those with aplomb
   He managed a stay
   From one with much sway
But still served to all with much calm

The Pilgrims were woefully thinner
But learned what to eat from a sinner
In thanks for their living
They held a Thanksgiving
And ate Wampanoag for dinner

A Turkeys Eulogy

A turkey named Betty who knew better,
Slipped and let a well known butcher get her
Her last day of living,
To be on Thanksgiving
But she was loved by all those who "et" her!

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

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.

Tom Turkey Evades the Axe Again

Tom Turkey's doom again was kept at bay

   He wasn't picked for Thanksgiving entree

      Hunkered down to keep his head

         His pals were victims instead

            Tom survived to live for another day

Funny Thanksgiving Limerick

Grandma burns the food and is no cook
She needs to stick to reading a book
Fire covers the turkey
It tastes like beef jerky
Paula brought food we are off the hook

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! :)

A Quirky Chow Chow

An old chow chow in Albuquerque
is often called odd, weird, and quirky
He drinks only prune juice
His best friend is a goose
and on Thanksgiving he weeps for the turkey
