Eatin’ My Thanksgivin’ Meal

A Poem

Image shows eight people sitting around a table of food, all of them reaching toward the middle with their glasses clinking together as in a toast.

I’ll start off with the roasted turkey,
Give it to me now; don’t be a jerky!

I’ll start off with the roasted turkey,
Give it to me now; don’t be a jerky!

My favorite dish is homemade stuffin’,
I want it right now and I ain’t bluffin’!

Then I’ll eat green bean casserole,
Gimme them beans ‘fore I lose control!

I love me some lumpy mashed p’taters,
I need ’em now and I don’t mean later!

For dessert I’ll have the pumpkin pie,
Add some whipped cream and don’t ask why!

You may think that I’ve had enough,
But I ain’t done ’til I’m good and stuffed!
