Turkey Day

Thanksgiving
By GC SMITH

Plump turkey
golden brown,
moist, succulent

Thanks for good things
that make our lives
worth living

Thanks for
our armed forces
and their sacrifices

Here’s to optimism
toward our future
in coming years

Thanks that our betrayers
will soon leave office,
next time we just might vote wisely

Thanks for all
that’s good and decent
and for our hope for better times

It’s not only the bird
it’s the symbol that’s
worth the sharing
