Let's have your Thanksgiving poems!

I'll go first!

My husband's out, hunting for tarragon.
He must think he's Catherine of Aragon!
Forget all the razzle.
Let's settle for basil!
You need not be a herbal paragon!
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

Frankly, it's time for a beer.
But no! No festivities here.
For would you believe

I wish it was Thanksgiving again
but it happened back in October.
I'll just have to vicariously watch
whilst remaining most boringly sober.

Americans are weird
Black Friday's a farce
Why go out shopping
when you can sit on your arse?

In the old days it was Indians and pilgrims
munching on turkeys and corn
Now it's families bickering over politics
while teens hide and watch porn

We’ll fill up one nuts by half one.
Three potatoes in we’ll be done.
But we’ll persevere
And pour litres of beer
Down our throats because all this is ‘fun’
You come at the Queen, you best not miss.

We're throwing our annual Thanksgiving party tomorrow and so my wife is hard at it in the kitchen baking pumpkin pie, cheese cake, brownies and doing what else needs to be done aside from roasting the two turkeys and stuffing which we'll (probably her) will do in the morning before guests arrive around 1. Meanwhile I sit here playing with you guys.

I am thankful for my wife.
I could have done worse.
Thankful she's in my life
Til off drives my hearse.

I don't know for what we're giving thanks
It's a celebration largely reserved for yanks
I know they eat turkey, as some kind of wheeze
Only said that so I could mention aerosol cheese.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

Two turkeys gnawed down to their bones, it's 3:30 am and the last guests left an hour ago. We started at 1 pm. Must have had 30 friends in our apartment and it seems like everyone had a good time. I did. Everyone brought something to eat and share. M baked up a storm. I helped a little. it was a fine party. So much wonderful conversation, loads of booze. And this is what we have done every year for almost 30 years.

It was fun.
I'm thankful it's dun.

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone
I look outside at my leaf covered lawn
And think of those in greater need
I wish the world was absent greed.

The turkey was heaped
on my plate with much glee
I shovelled potatoes...
as many as I could see
Green beans and gravy,
cranberry and squash,
and a mug full of sweet tea
for the gullet to wash

So I sat and gave thanks
for not being liberal,
or a ni**er or wetback
or abortion-addicted gal.
I picked up my fork
and started the dance
between eating and politics
and not changing my stance

'tween mouthfuls
and gulps
and with barely a glance
at the others 'round the table
be they friend or close kin
I stabbed with my fork
'til the room began to swim

I filled up my belly
then filled it some more
Someone said "have dessert"
and I relished the chance
but first belched,
then farted
and realized I'd shit my pants

I bought a turkey for thanksgiving
I wanted to get into some American living
But now I've blown all my money
It's become a rotten business
as I'll have to have a tin of tuna for Xmas.
