A Thangsgiving Lesson

by Maria Francesca

You start with dessert -
pumpkin pie a la mode;
then a tall glass of egg nog
to add to the load
and a scoop of
that wonderful mac 'n' cheese
and those yams
that are always so certain to please;
now add
veggies and salad,
potatoes and gravy,
and cran sauce, and if there's some room left,
then maybe
some turkey baked perfectly;
juicy and tender.
Now mix it all up in your trusty old blender.
Forget that old fork;
all you'll need is a straw
that'll fit through the wires
supporting your jaw,
and the thought
that when noting
the size of her butt,
a wise husband knows
just to keep his mouth shut.
