Turkey's Thanksgiving Wish


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013 with permission of the author.

If a turkey will make a wish
It would be a long, long list.
It will give you all sorts of reasons
To change that turkey tradition.

It will wish you change your mind
Of having a turkey when you dine.
It will wish you'll crave for seafood
Or tell you crabs would be good!

It will wish you have a toothache
So mashed potato is what you'll pick.
Or wish that on Thanksgiving Dinner
Only vegetarians will come together.

Yet, people come and they insist,
"A turkey dish is just the best!"
Poor turkey, it will just yell,
"Oh dear, please take away the
November in a year!"
