Ma's New Thanksgiving

Ma’s New Thanksgiving 

tom bell for dinner?
dinner bell for tom bell?
tom bell’s our dear prize turkey

been with us for years
strutting round and round the yard
almost one of us

pa sharpens the axe
but tom bell’s smarter than hell
hides behind the barn

and pa then gives chase
but tom bell’s faster than hell,
pa older than hell

yep! pa gives it up
but none of us can stand ham
chicken? don’t seem right

beef for thanksgiving?
hey! no way, jose, no way!
ma has a new plan

calls it turkasoy
it’s brown and tastes not too bad
we’ll make a fortune!

Thanksgiving Alliteration (Senryu)

Living and laughing Gathering, gleaming in grace Thanksgiving today! © Joseph 11/22/07 © All Rights Reserved Author’s Comments: The Japanese Senryu format has three lines as follows: the first has five syllables, the second seven syllables, and the third five syllables. The pattern is 5/7/5 for a total of seventeen syllables. The Senryu is about an emotional expression, human nature, and things in the human realms which maybe satiric or humorous.
