Topless Turvkey

A Poem by Dave Brown



Being a turkey on thanksgiving

Makes a turkey’s envy not near green

The thought of being eaten so stressful

They’ve developed evasion techniques

Although, none too successful


First the duck ploy was undertaken

Which many turkeys invested a stake in

Jumping into a pond and uttering a quack

But none could swim and none came back


Then the thing about a shorter neck

But the head choppers block was hi-tech

A serious swing was all it took

And each turkey’d had their last look


Desperation brought thoughts about Mars

Grabbing a ride with Elon, up to the stars

But Elon enjoyed his turkey too

Which had that option fail is debut


Now-a-days turkeys are resigned to their fate

As they’re sliced and diced upon every plate

Those raising turkeys, just think its great

But headless turkeys want a rebate

There's us over here being told by media there will be turkey shortages at Christmas, and you have Thanksgiving to think about first. You know I can't help feeling sorry for the poor old turkey. Not much fun eh?

I so am enjoying the funny little challenge between you and Margie that is going on. If I wasn't so damn lazy as of lately I would want to get in on some of this action. You both keep ripping them out and I'll keep on reading. Haha
