Just A Few More Days For Thanksgiving (Free Style)

Just a few more days are left for Thanksgiving,
Yummy, yummy, turkey day is almost here again,
But for the poor birds no such a day
Because, it has been plain hell for them to pay

Infortunate creatures they all had their day,
Frozen in time, sitting somewhere just like some stupid birds...
Waiting so stiff in some freezers for baking or roasting day,
For all out there to eat them one by one, in such a deplorable way

Thanksgiving is a family time,
A most precious day to thank the Lord,
Funny but I don't see that bird sitting at the table,
Ready with a knife and a fork to have also their due meal

All that see year after year without end
Is a lined up of other kind of turkeys
The ones that kill and cook all those poor birds
To me it seems so funny, to see turkeys eating turkeys

Gobble, gobble, gobble please, don't choke on that turkey.

Poem of the Day


Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
