There is a brand new treat,
On the culinary horizon,
They call it turducken,
It requires much work to be done,
It’s really fun to eat,
But where in the world do you buy one?
First you split a turkey open wide,
Then place a bit of stuffing inside,
Use a bread or a sausage stuffin’,
Please don’t make it with English muffins,
Next you split apart a duckling,
Please do not use a pig that’s suckling,
Lay that duckling inside your turkey,
We need one more bird to make our three.
We can’t forget to split a chicken,
This portion will be finger lickin’,
And guess what surprise you will add next,
Another round of stuffing? You guessed!
Now it is time to close the chicken,
As the fowl juices start to kick in
Then next we stitch up that tasty duck,
Hopefully all the feathers were plucked,
Finish by binding up that turkey,
And the turducken has come to be,
It has become the time to roast it,
While we are at it, let us toast it,
Just be sure not to overbroast it,
Cooking will take a good three hours,
Time for a lot of whiskey sours.
If game fowl is your fare,
Then you truly will enjoy this one,
When it’s cooked, you will stare,
And ask how do you know when it’s done?
So good you will not share,
Cause eating turducken is so fun.
