DON t Be A TURKEY
DON’T BE A TURKEY
O Tom, he has wisdom and marmite.
Others they like spreading delight-
which seems quite spite-
ful. Still Tom does think they’ll try a bite.
What think you, of stuffing a turkey?
You’d rather eat marmite on crusty
thick bread? A smile
and all the while
your friends, over vegemite, lusty.
So don’t be a turkey, dear Tom, sir.
That jar, with its cap, away with her.
Your friends be snick-
while they have a lick of their spoons, sir.
