Run You Turkeys, Run



Turkeys have all been running like hell Afraid for their very lives A dangerous time of the year for them Sure not very nice of us guys They've all got wives and kiddies at home With a loaded to the top Visa card Soon gonna get their head above water Now this, life is so hard I'm cheering for the turkeys, I am, I am Deserve a much better fate Like you and me, just trying to get along Run, run for the farmer's gate For those that make it, Christmas is next Maybe travel to another country Where chickens and cows and fish are eaten They'd be then able to roam free Run you turkeys, run! © Jack Ellison 2013

    With Thanksgiving comming up this is a good poem. I do feel sorry for the turkeys, but they tase so good at least once a year. Do you eat Turkey? Let me know. I hope so - that way I won't feel so bad when I eat it.... Lucilla

    Dear Jack, as things are going you will save all turkeys in the country! They will declare you their savior but you may face the wrath of another species: Hungry humans! Ha-ha! Superb quatrain, you made my day!

    Dragon heard your poem and decided to save the turkeys... Alas, he liberated the turkey freezer section... and we had to pay for them... Then he couldn't understand why they didn't fly away... DUH! Silly Dragon!... So we had a barbecue, and the store ordered more. We all had a bumper year... Not so much for the turkeys... tho... Then I took him to the park and explained all the turkeys he saw were already liberated... including the wild flying kind... Turkeys come in all shapes and sizes... LOL

    haha, I actually prefer chicken meat. When the turkeys see me coming, they can relax.
