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

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
