Further Turkey Verses

These verses
On your fridge,
You working stiffs.
Say thanks with friends and such.
Today's the day to loosen up enough
To scarf down pounds of succulent hot Turkey,
Grandma's cornbread dressing, peas and broccoli,
Gobble gobs of new potatoes mashed, and yummy stuff
Like giblet gravy, candied yams, succotash and buttered squash--
So much food that most must undo belts that cinch too tight
To fit a slice of homemade pecan pie, or another bite
Or two of pumpkin, or a goblet of white wine,
Why not? A hefty snifter of fine brandy,
Or piece of peppermint hard candy.
A pleasant walk to help digest it,
Since the doctors all suggest it
After a major meal's ingested.
Perhaps a nap (a sleeping fit)
Will do the trick as fast:
Convert the tasty feast
To compost waste
No keeping it
Next day,
No way.
