A Thankful Turkey

Written by Gail DeBole

When a turkey, who yearly escapes
From his owner's Thanksgiving plate,
Was asked to reveal
Why he's never a meal
He said, "That much of a turkey I ain't!"

Note: Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November in the United States.  President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed this as an official holiday in 1863.

For Canadian Eyes Only

Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canucks
I'd send you a card and maybe some bucks
but I'm broke
that's no joke
Stay close to the fire and wear your mukluks

Thanksgiving in the mirror

With "plenty" this culture's endowed 
Bad outcomes are never allowed!
But nature's stealthy
And notes for the wealthy
Silver linings come with a cloud

Healthy Moderation

Our first lady Michelle from the white house.
Encourages healthy eating not souse.
Limbaugh cries idiot.
In the newspaper writ.
She was eating hamburgers with her spouse!

In Vale he said they were sking on snow.
Then eating ribs, he said on his show.
But how can he talk?
With his bulk hard to walk!
Having chest pains to the hospital did go!

"Food Nanny" Obama is saying,
Having barbeque won't be paying.
Have pie on Thanksgiving Day,
Said Michelle critics say,
Moderation??  To the dogs we're straying!

A Not So Good Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a day to be grateful,
Not a day to be grumpy or hateful.
But a burnt pumpkin pie,
And a turkey that's dry,
Might make it hard to be elateful.*

*(I realize elateful is not a word, but I claim poetic

Now on this thanksgiving day
Whilst you wash your dinner away
With wine and coffee creamy topped 
And listen to the music bop
I wish you all the turkey trots

terrorism warning for thanksgiving

This antique house has old bowels
An attack could give us the scowls
The toilet must flow
And we want you to know
It’s bad if you flush paper towels!

Authors Note: This is the most significant threat during the holidays. We shall have guests, and how can we control what they do?  Fellow poets and hosts please feel free to publish this limerick on a little card and place it in your guest bathroom so that you might avoid this deplorable and monumental attack!

Which Turkey to Take - A Thanksgiving Limerick

The man had a tough choice to make
Which of the birds should he take?
Both turkeys looked good
But he thought that he should
Take the jenny instead of the jake.

Turkey Day

Let’s thank God for this turkey day
But all of the birds have runaway
They must of seen the axe 
Don’t think they could relax
Left all their feathers in the hay

Overlooked Tradition

Deprived pilgrim wives ruminated
On ways to get hubbies elated:
After Thanksgiving chow
Ogling men hollered “wow!”
As wet-shirted women they rated.

Turkey Gobbler

There once was a turkey named Tom
Always persecuted by those with aplomb
   He managed a stay
   From one with much sway
But still served to all with much calm

The gobble-oscopy

The “gobble-oscopy” 

When the chef succumbed to his bottle
twenty turkeys escaped without gobble
took an apple and stuck it
where no one would pluck it
so the chef giving chase could but hobble

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving soon coming to town
Turkey plumped up and golden brown
‘tho some like white meat
The dark can’t be beat
To the table we all sit down.

First begin the meal with a prayer
Thanking God for everyone there
Let the feast begin
Knife and fork, dig in
There seems to be food everywhere.

Potatoes and dressing and pies
To eat too much would not be wise
With plenty for all
And plates piled too tall
Indigestion will be your prize!

happy T day

Happy day of giving thanks to all Ameri-cans
enjoy your feasting-football-family, party-hearty plans
even to you
who do tofu
instead of turkey (those birds, your biggest fans)

Our Thanksgiving Pants

We all commented that the turkey was grand,
somebody saying the gravy was too bland,
we had said Grace,
stuffed our faces,
thank God for pants with elastic waist bands!

Turkey Day

  Turkey Day came quite suddenly,

  Festivities were so happy;

  We sure did imbibe

  of cranberry wine

  Cleaning up part won't be from me!

Thanksgiving Warning

  Wild turkeys walking by the road,

  asked them, "May I be so very bold,

  fellers, did you hear

  Thanksgiving is near

  RUN!, or be on china trimmed with gold!"

My Thanksgiving Poem

My Thanksgiving Poem

We re giving God thanks for the creation.
Of America that is another new nation;
Happiness existed;
Love persisted,
And there now will be a big celebration.
