Oh, Thanksgiving

The turkey is in the oven.

The stuffing is on the stove.

Got relatives by the dozen,

God! they are coming in droves.

We gather around the table

Give thanks for what we are about to receive,

As we all watch the cable

Only to see the Cowboys score three.

Everyone groans and then digs in.

Before you know it the turkey is picked clean,

I wonder if they really are my kin,

As I only get a wing.

The food is gone

And so are they.

I look at mom,


"Now that was a Thanksgiving Day"
