Enjoy Your Gift

Life
Should be like
Opening a
Gift

Done slowly
And
Methodically

With great
Anticipation

Untying the bow
And
Setting it aside
For
Future use

Sliding your fingers
Under the tape
To carefully loosen it
Without
Tearing the paper

Taking
A quick peek
To see if you can tell yet
What’s inside

Slipping off the wrappings
And being
Delighted
With what you find

Done properly
It takes
Decades

Wild Turkey Tale

dscn0275

Pick up the pace we have to hurry
Matilda’s missing I’m getting worried

Into the oven she’s been shoved
Bid adieu to my true love

Packed with stuffing, trussed and skewered
I only wish she had been shrewder

Soon to be hash casserole
Thanksgiving takes a hefty toll

Pick up your feet we best not tarry
Or next they’ll snatch up uncle Harry

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
