How I love this day!
All the wonderful smells of cooking turkeys
Pies that never seem to be enough of heaven
Pleasing to the eye and to the tongue
You can’t imagine my glee

This day of thankfulness begins as it must
Home with all my family
All of us waiting for the feast
Now listen to the children laugh
Kicking around ice balls in the yard
Sipping hot cider by the fire
Giving gifts of love all around
Investing in a future of love
Vieing for the wishbone future
Inside the empty remains
Next to the empy thighs,
Guts and gravy… ah, what a day!
