    Thanksgiving Poem

    THANKSGIVING

    The turkey shot out of the oven
    and rocketed into the air
    it knocked every plate off the table
    and partly demolished a chair
    it ricocheted into a corner
    and burst with a deafening boom
    then splattered all over the kitchen
    completely obscuring the room
    it stuck to the walls and the windows
    it totally coated the floor
    there was turkey attached to the ceiling
    where there'd never been turkey before
    it blanketed every appliance
    it smeared every saucer and bowl
    there wasn't a way I could stop it
    that turkey was out of control
    I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure
    and thought with chagrin as I mopped
    that I'd never again stuff a turkey
    with popcorn that hadn't been popped.

    That reminds me of the time I decided to make popcorn at age ten when my mother wasn't home. I didn't know that you're supposed to use a lid!

    A Thanksgiving Dinner

    Maude M. Grant

    Take a turkey, stuff it fat,
    Some of this and some of that.
    Get some turnips, peel them well.
    Cook a big squash in its shell.

    Now potatoes, big and white,
    Mash till they are soft and light.
    Cranberries, so tart and sweet,
    With the turkey we must eat.

    Pickles-yes-and then, oh my!
    For a dessert a pumpkin pie,
    Golden brown and spicy sweet.
    What a fine Thanksgiving treat!

    I Ate Too Much Turkey

    by Jack Prelutsky

    I ate too much turkey,
    I ate too much corn,
    I ate too much pudding and pie,
    I'm stuffed up with muffins
    and much too much stuffin',
    I'm probably going to die.

    I piled up my plate
    and I ate and I ate,
    but I wish I had known when to stop,
    for I'm so crammed with yams,
    sauces, gravies, and jams
    that my buttons are starting to pop.

    I'm full of tomatoes
    and french fried potatoes,
    my stomach is swollen and sore,
    but there's still some dessert,
    so I guess it won't hurt
    if I eat just a little bit more.
