Thanksgiving Without Turkey

( THANKSGIVING WITHOUT TURKEY ) I sat at the table, eager to eat To have my fill, right at my seat My father carved the Turkey A wonderful sight My mother asked me “dark meat or white”? But just before my plate came near My little dog Edgar pulled up from the rear He jumped on the table in a single bound Landing in the middle with nary a sound He landed on my Turkey One and all could see And right there Edgar decided to pee I shook in horror, I quaked in fright But in the end, I knew Edgar was right He’s just a dog, and did what dogs do I could not be angry, but I told him to shoo So mother cleaned the table, and discarded the Turkey And in it's place we had beef jerky!
