ONCE A YEAR, WE GATHER HERE

TO GIVE THANKS FOR ALL OUR BLESSINGS!

COOKIES AND CAKES AND PIES ARE BAKED,

AND A LOVELY TURKEY FILLED WITH DRESSING!

 

ALL THAT STUFF IS QUITE ENOUGH

TO MAKE ONE DROOL IN ANTICIPATION

BUT I WONDER WHY, MOM INVITED THAT NEW GUY…

TO JOIN OUR FAMILY CELEBRATION!

 

FOR HE’S SO FAT, I WORRY THAT

THIS MEAL WILL MORE THAN FILL HIM!

IF HE EATS ANY MORE, I’M FAIRLY WELL SURE

THAT EXTRA PIECE OF PIE WILL KILL HIM!

 

OH, LOOK AT THAT…THERE ON THE WELCOME MAT

STANDS MY GREAT UNCLE BILL!

ITS NEVER LONG WHEN HE COMES ALONG

BEFORE HE EATS HIS FILL!

 

AND THERE WILL BE COUSINS – THEY COME BY THE DOZENS…

THEY CAN BE FOUND IN EVERY ROOM!

TOLD NOT TO BE RUDE – THEY STILL BEG FOR FOOD

AND DEMAND THAT WE EAT REAL SOON!

 

MOM FEEDS THEM ALL – THE LARGE AND THE SMALL -

ON EACH THANKSGIVING DAY!

BUT THEY HAVE NEVER – NO NOT EVER!

FORGOTTEN TO BOW THEIR HEADS AND PRAY!
