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.* 11/16/12 *(I realize elateful is not a word, but I claim poetic license.)

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.
