Uncle Dave's Grace (Lou and Peter Berryman)

A bit of levity for the upcoming holiday... :-)

POEM: A Turkey Speaks ~ Author Unknown

I have never understood
why anyone would
roast the turkey
and shuck the clams
and crisp the croutons
and shell the peas
and candy the sweets
and compote the cranberries
and bake the pies
and clear the table
and wash the dishes
and fall into bed
when they could sit back
and enjoy a hamburger.

QUOTE(S): "Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence." ~ Erma Bombeck

"Coexistence: what the farmer does with the turkey - until Thanksgiving." ~ Mike Connolly
