Limerick Ode To Thanksgiving

I can’t let Thanksgiving go by without writing a limerick. Or maybe I can. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure it’s my duty as an American citizen to post this while there’s still time to save yourselves:

Limerick Ode To Thanksgiving
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Whatever you’re planning to eat
This Thanksgiving, I hope it’s a treat.
Whether stuffing and turkey
Or something more quirky,
Here’s hoping it doesn’t repeat.

    I’m thankful for those with concern
    For my gas and occasional heartburn
    I’ll remember your caring
    While finishing the herring
    And hope that my stomach doesn’t turn.

  2. But leaves you replete.

    “So glad that unclad I’m reliving,
    My woe in tableaux unforgiving,
    In feathery splendor,
    The racial offender.”
    So said Mr. Red on Thanksgiving.

  4. Peter Metrinko says:

    I’ve got gravy all over my nose
    I’m so stuffed I’ve stripped off my clothes
    “What, you’re naked? And why?”
    So I can dive into the pie
    Utensils are for the non-pros.
