Thomas Turkey Avoids The Dreaded Axe

Tom Turkey got lost 'midst the teeming flock, Thus, avoiding the dreaded chopping block! Hunkering down spared his life, Averting the carving knife! He now recovers from traumatic shock!

I tend to agree with you, Jan. I just as soon have a good roast beef but turkey has become traditional for American Thanksgiving, Christmas and every other holiday you can think of. - Bob

G'day Bob … I wonder if a turkey has worked out why it's getting overfed at this time of the year. A terrible time for a fat turkey Bob - thanks Mate - Lindsay

Poor Tom! Quite a witty poem, Bob. Hope he continues to hunker down for a while. We till have a couple weeks to go before Thanksgiving. Hope you are spending the holiday with your daughters! Love, Carolyn

I'm back again to say I was so inspired by your limericks I wrote one of my own called "A Horse for Dinner". I hope you like it. Deb
