Thank God! itís finally over-
And now Iíll get some rest...
Itís been two weeks since I have dared
To go back to the nest.
I trust my mate is still around..
My lovely hen, dear Mabel-
I hope she wasnít dumb enough
To grace some humanís table.
Iíll never know why human folk
Think itís so much fun
To hit the woods and murder-
We turkeys with those guns
Iím six years old, last hatching-
And friend thatís quite a feat...
With open season on us birds...
When we become...just MEAT!
Iíll strut my stuff, and gobble loud
For just awhile...again!..
Iíll hide deep in the forest...
For itís Christmas coming then!
So why did I hen-scratch this out?
And post it here for you?
That you might see Thanksgiving
From the turkeyís point of view.

Live large, people!

Last time I saw Mabel
she was laying on the table
legs up in the air ...
stuffed with dressing up to there !

Mabel, Mabel,
was not able
to get her self
up off my table.

Lest I try a lame lament ...
I'd say that's where Mabel went.

I can't save Mabel. I think I ate her!

Yesterday is history,
tomorrow just a mystery.
And if today is good to me,
it will beat the heck out of day before yesterday!
