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!

Fowled Tongue

Turkey farmer Jones was seen as a kook.
Many declared his whole life was a fluke.
But they were not aware
Jones had learned a skill rare,
he was fluent in speaking gobbledygook.

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.

'Tis the Season

Trump Towers in Old Istanbul
Influenced our President's pull
Brown skins do not matter
So let the Kurds scatter
And enjoy the Turkey Shoot Cull

Cunning Ham

Tom flew down to Turkey to play
But found at the end of the day
Putin had to gobble
So there was a squabble
Hence the Marmite-Putin soufflé

No Bordeaux

There once was a young man from Turkey
Whose food tastes were known to be quirky
On braised lamb with Bordeaux
He had quickly said no
And asked if they had some Beef Jerky

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.*

State Buds

I do like European food
Hungary and right in the mood,
I Czech'd the specialty 
And Finnished a Turkey -
O'slo I did eat, t'was so good!



Inspired by a pun I read recently

He Wears His Golf Cap Up High

He Wears His Golf Cap Up High

His eyes throw comic arrows at his golf shot
Juggernaut after another, and a turkey trot
Double fidgets, a puppet swing
Slices and hooks on a string
Knees and feet wobble, his lessons went to pot

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.

Southern Comfort

Cletus finds comfort in Southern Comfort

   The day is lost if he don't have a snort

      He doesn't like Four Roses

         Old Turkey he opposes

            He prefers Southern Comfort by the quart

Thanksgiving





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

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)

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

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

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!

black fryday

the inlaws and outlaws have left
the turkey has so much less heft
got pies for the flies
and naps for the eyes
the icebox has suffered from theft

but

still got ‘nuff leftovers to make peach gobbler

Turkey feed

Now the turkeys are feeding like kings
And they flap round their high protein wings
Soon unknown to the dears
They will sit on their rears
And be roasted and stuffed, the poor things

The Skin Were In

Our skin when young was soft as a cuddly baby kittens,
getting turkey necks and batwings only leads to wisdom,
will not ever admit defeat,
as I look at my new crows feet,
at least we still have some animal magnetism.

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
