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.*

    Poetic license granted! I like this one for it's sense of whimsy. I'm not sure of the rating system: is 7 good or is 1 good? So I'll just say it was good!

    poetic license is very liberal with limericks, Kim, since it's all about humor. This is a very good one you did!! I happen to like my turkey meat white and dry. hahaha GREAT limerick.
