THE CAT WHO ATE SUET

THE CAT WHO ATE SUET

Our Tobermory Cat, when he was young,

Ate a chunk of suet that Dad for the birds had flung…

The poor cat moaned for days till the suet passed through

And learned his lesson well–that again he would not do!

Last night I was so hungry that I filled up a plate

Of dark turkey meat and the whole thing I ate…

This morning my tummy hurt for an hour or two,

Like the cat…for me that was a foolish thing to do!

HOLIDAY HAIKU

HOLIDAY HAIKU

(The first of many?)

 

Shopping lay away,

Managing debt rent style…

Happier morning!

Turkey’s waiting there,

Fixings still on “to buy” list…

Could we please eat out?

Putting ham on burger,

Kosher beef sandwich menued…

Culture dissonance.

Holiday times planned,

We can afford travel…how?

Making sacrifices!

Jesus the Babe born,

Royal bed was a manger…

Praise God–Christmas morn!!!

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!
