WHAT WILL YOU BE HAVING?
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…
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!
