Twas the eve before Turkey Day.

Twas the night before thanksgiving, and all threw the house
Not a creature was stirring not even my louse.
The turkey was thawing in the sink full of water.
My dreams were filled with why even bother.
The alarm blared its a quarter to four.
I ran for my bathrobe and tiptoed to the door.

I grabbed butter and pepper and salt and lots of spice
People think I am crazy staring and even the mice.
Preheat the oven and open the door.
Tom turkey is baking and I hit the floor.

Ten hours later at six minutes to four
I get to the table all tired and wore.
We bow our heads and say grace.
The turkey is now gone without a trace.

Corn on the plates, the mashed potatos fly.
I turn my head and question why.
I shake my head and proudly exclaim...
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving Turkey day.
