Talking Turkeys!

Rating: 3.6
Be nice to yu turkeys dis christmas
Cos' turkeys just wanna hav fun
Turkeys are cool, turkeys are wicked
An every turkey has a Mum.
Be nice to yu turkeys dis christmas,
Don't eat it, keep it alive,
It could be yu mate, an not on your plate
Say, Yo! Turkey I'm on your side.
I got lots of friends who are turkeys
An all of dem fear christmas time,
Dey wanna enjoy it, dey say humans destroyed it
An humans are out of dere mind,
Yeah, I got lots of friends who are turkeys
Dey all hav a right to a life,
Not to be caged up an genetically made up
By any farmer an his wife.

Turkeys just wanna play reggae
Turkeys just wanna hip-hop
Can yu imagine a nice young turkey saying,
ÒI cannot wait for de chopÓ,
Turkeys like getting presents, dey wanna watch christmas TV,
Turkeys hav brains an turkeys feel pain
In many ways like yu an me.

I once knew a turkey called........ Turkey
He said "Benji explain to me please,
Who put de turkey in christmas
An what happens to christmas trees?",
I said "I am not too sure turkey
But itÕs nothing to do wid Christ Mass
Humans get greedy an waste more dan need be
An business men mek loadsa cash'.

Be nice to yu turkey dis christmas
Invite dem indoors fe sum greens
Let dem eat cake an let dem partake
In a plate of organic grown beans,
Be nice to yu turkey dis christmas
An spare dem de cut of de knife,
Join Turkeys United an dey'll be delighted
An yu will mek new friends 'FOR LIFE'.

Do not eat turkeys all time, these great chickens are not delicious, I heard people say, they are dry when roasted or cooked. Too dry meat, so you must drink much wine, AH, is that the purpose of all these business, wine is always sold out and the people get oft drunk. I do not know whether I have written the truth. These words are all what I THINK at the moment of writing. BUT, Mr. Zephaniah is a brilliant great poet! No doubt.5 Stars!

Lovely. Its not just about turkeys turkeys but turkeys in TURKEY and oppressed people and a football team made of turkeys called Turkey United. Brilliant poem. Not because he is a black turkey but this is the kind of humorous turnkey poem i like to read and write.
