So delightfully funny and clever, Susan. Your gift for writing both short and long poems is truly enviable. Can I borrow your muse for a short while? Best wishes always, Brian

Too true, when my daughter was in first year college, there was something called the turkey dump where first year students said adios to their high school boyfriend. Hopefully this applies to Trump.

Haha! Those poor boys.. Yes, college can be so liberating! Thank you, D.W., for your wonderful visit. I don't usually get involved with politics here but let's hope that the Trump curse can be broken for good! Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Well, Susan, You have me laughing out loud at the top of the morning, and I love it right along with your, "Turkey Day For a Lame Duck". Brilliant brevity. I read your comment to Greg Gaul's, "Mama Say", and felt added joy to my morning by his poem and marks of your pen to him. And if I could be blessed to use my pen for the good of Us; humanity, God Almighty be praised. Peace!

Dear Iris, I am so happy to know that you enjoyed my limerick. I had to poke fun at the big turkey knowing that his goose was cooked.. hehe! Thank you for your awesome comments, they made my day! I'm especially thrilled for the added joy you felt over Greg Gaul's poem "Mama Say". Thank you for sharing your precious thoughts about his poignant and impactful poem with me. If only all of humanity could use their gifts to benefit all of humanity, then we could fulfill our collective souls' destiny.. to reach the highest level of divinity. I will catch up on your poetic creations soon which I'm sure are blessed with talent, grace and yes humanity. Warmest wishes always, my friend.. ~Susan

Thank you, my perceptive friend. Indeed, this was my first attempt at a limerick. I was inspired on Thanksgiving day and was lucky to get my poem in as the last entry in the contest. I was happy for it to place on the win list and happy to bring smiles to faces, especially yours, dear Paul. Your wonderful comments warm my heart like a nice hot cup of cocoa on a cold evening. Warmest wishes and hugs.. ~Susan

Well, I am not so sure if he was dumped or not. I had to do a mail-in ballot so I don't know if it got counted or not. I am only one of many that had to vote that way. If I went to the polls and voted, I still am not sure it it would have been cast like I wanted it. Maybe next Presidential election it will be better. Maybe any kinks or problems will be fixed and maybe there won't be a virus going around. Enjoyed reading your well thought out work. Thanks for dropping by my page. Sara
