O magnificent turkey, king of all the gobbler-wobblers, what would our Thanksgiving we be without you?
Your wattle and plumage are proud
Our heads in prayer are bowed
(And just ONE of you feeds a crowd!)
We baste up your biscuits
We woo you for days
(And turkey goes great with a cranberry glaze!)
Thou art a proud and noble beast
The most with the most-est, not the least
(A bird on which we like to feast!)
Don’t tarry, tender turkey
Our plates are set for you
There’s carrots, peas and stuffin’
But we need GRAVY, too!
(p.s. You turkey haters will get tofurkey and taters. And you’ll like it).
