DON t Be A TURKEY

DON’T BE A TURKEY O Tom, he has wisdom and marmite. Others they like spreading delight- ful vegemite, 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- ering…a trick, while they have a lick of their spoons, sir. 10/14/2022

Not a big turkey fan, Kim. Prefer a roast chicken, the darker meat especially. And I don't attend thanksgiving dinners anymore – same old stuff every year! Wild turkeys still appear in these parts of New England around this time, and not a few, from lazyness or stupidity, end up on the highways for scavenger crows and other creatures looking for a free meal. Enjoyed your poem. / Maurice

I love the white meat with gravy and the accompaniments. Still I don’t need the “stuffing!” LOL. Thanks, Maurice!

When they interviewed Universal CEO Donna Langley, she said, "I'm English! I love my Marmite sandwich!" so Tom knows where to get Marmite when he is in Hollywood! As for turkeys . . . . Enjoyed! Aloha!

A vegetarian myself, Tom will live a long and amorous life at my farm. Lovely read! You are up there with the best writers. Thank you for the inspiration.

I cannot imagine a turkey stuffed with marmite or vegemite, whatever those things may be. I make a potato and oyster dressing, which may sound yucky to lots of people, but is yummy. Love your humor, Kim.
