Thanksgiving approaches — my word!
Again, this dilemma occurred:
Is stuffing my wish
Never miss a local story.
From a casserole dish
Or else scooped from the guts of the bird?
We’ll all get along if we try it —
(No politics talk, or of diet)
With relatives shuffled,
As long as they’re eating, they’re quiet.
Forgive me for musing or guessing;
From meat of this day I’m digressing —
Not turkey (aw, shucks!)
Is at holiday’s crux;
But instead, let’s give thanks for each blessing.
