BEEF JERKY IS RUNNING THIN

What is for supper today,

Eat new or the same way…

Pizza and wings

Or Chinese dumplings,

Or salad…is that okay?

–J.E.C.

WHAT WILL YOU BE HAVING?

WHAT WILL YOU BE HAVING?

(FOR THANKSGIVING)

 

The temptation we face this year

Is to totally steer clear…

A big turkey bird

For two is absurd,

We’d be eating on it till next year!

On Thanksgiving, not having turkey,

Is outlandish and very quirky…

Maybe a nice steak

Will give us a break,

The salt content’s high in beef jerky.

Other years a half-turkey breast,

Of half-turkeys I can’t attest…

Was enough—

Are they calling our bluff?

Do we need an intelligence test?

We’ve sometimes gotten by with ham,

But we’re under that “less salt” command…

And need less fat

The gravy has that,

Maybe Thanksgiving won’t be so grand!
