Enough Already, Ode to a Turkey

Oh how I love thee with your white and dark meat Thou art the very best But because of you, I can’t see my feet My navel is two feet from my chest To diet and lose so I don’t wobble no more I would be very willing It would be impossible now, because somehow I finished four bowls of filling My wife pointed at me and said look at him He sits at the table, like a dog he begs I stare at you and your magnificent breast Can hardly wait to get my hands on your legs Enough already, I’m on my knees Give me some stuffing and some black eyed peas Sweet potatoes, corn and a salad I’ll toss And bury your butt with cranberry sauce Oh turkey, my turkey, you’re the one who rocks Now I’ve gotten so fat, I can’t put on my socks My love for you was fleeting And we are finished I fear But I’ll fall in love with another turkey Same time next year.
