Hark! The Herald Turkey Gobbles

 

By Mike Foster, Nov. 22, 1966 & Nov. 25, 2011

Hark! The herald turkey gobbles

Pilgrims paved their streets with cobbles

Peace on earth and pass the stuffing

Eat till we’re all huffy puffing

Joyful see the turkey rise

Hatchet him between the eyes

Hark! The herald turkey gobbles

Try to rhyme gobbles and you’re bound to have trobbles.

Hark! The herald turkey gobbles

I eats too much, and then I hobbles

To the couch, where there I see

Bears and Lions on teevee

Joyful kiss the pumpkin pie

Another slice?  Why, don’t ask why.

Hark! The herald turkey, whee!

Breasts for you and thighs for me.

    Fun poem! Would love to know which parts are from ’66 and which came with the ’11 revision. Hard to tell with the piece’s timeless nature. Happy Thanksgiving, Mike, Brandon, and other contributors to the blog.

    That Thanksgiving feast “tasted” great! You Americans sure know how to celebrate a special day. It’s a fine tradition…not to be forgotten…ever.
