Happy Thanksgiving!


A Turkey Speaks

I have never understood
why anyone would
roast the turkey
and shuck the clams
and crisp the croutons
and shell the peas
and candy the sweets
and compote the cranberries
and bake the pies
and clear the table
and wash the dishes
and fall into bed
when they could sit back
and enjoy a hamburger.

  1. I read that poem as well the other day!
    I'm sure glad someone in the family is roasting, shucking, crisping, shelling, candying, compote (ing), baking, setting, clearing, washing, falling into bed and NOT making us burgers!!!!
