Turkey Gabble

Again 'tis that time of year when I must evade that cruel axe!

With  the thought of my neck on the choppin' block I jes' cain't relax!

How about a goose or duck to complement yer pies, beans and peas,

Or yer grandma's meatloaf to go with them sweet pertaters if you please!

I certainly ain't got nothin' to celebrate and be thankful fer,

And with that my cousins, brothers and uncles fully concur!

I pray you'll find other victuals in which to stab yer knife and fork.

May I respectully suggest that you eat more beef, feesh and pork!

    Good poem Bob H., Stopping by with a special greeting, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*
