A Thanksgiving Nightmare - Poem by Yvonne Eve831

I will never forget the Thanksgiving in nineteen seventy.
This was the one year Thanksgiving devastated me.
I was living in upstate New York at this time.
I had no idea this year the holiday would lead to a crime.
I just had my first baby girl that July.
My father's first granddaughter, the apple of his eye.
When the Thanksgiving holidays came around.
I planned to take my daughter out of town.
I decided to visit my family in D.C.
I wanted my dad to go with us but he wanted to stay behind.
I had a really bad feeling, a strange kind.
Nevertheless my baby girl and I were on our way.
I was so excited to be with my family on Thanksgiving Day.
We arrived safely with a couple days to spare.
Everyone was fighting over the baby and happy we were there.
My cousins and I had much fun but before you knew Thanksgiving Eve was in our face.
My favorite cousin and I were on our way to a party over at her friend's place.
Just before we were about to leave I got a call.
It was bad news I cried through it all.
The bad news went straight to my head.
My dad was stabbed and pronounced dead.
The person who took my father's life,
Was my stepmother, his conniving, evil wife!
