Happy T day!

I've been spreading that message in my comments...

Happy Turkey Day!
Don't stuff yourself!
Count your blessings!

PAD #24 - gathering

Talking Turkey

“We call this secret meeting
As time is by us fleeting

“The hour’s drawing near
We need a volunteer

“Who will be the bravest
To sacrifice and save us?

“We can’t leave this to chance!”
“Why can’t we make a stance?!”

A voice came from the crowd
“Who said that? Speak out loud!”

The masses split in two
To show Bartholomew

“If we all stick together
He won’t grab a feather!

“Let him choose a pig this year
Then we can do a jig and cheer!”

Ooos and ahhhs, a “Sure! Why not!”
“Let the pig go in the pot!”

Unanimous the turkeys gobbled
Then in their midst the farmer hobbled.

Tho they had such high ambitions
The turkeys scattered, forgot their mission

Big fat Tom had met his end
The rest bowed heads for their dear friend.

Maybe next year…
