Turkeys are banding together (39 days and counting ’til Thanksgiving), hoping for safety in numbers!
“AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM TURKEYS!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Be Afraid, Humans; Be VERY Afraid – Of Turkey Wrath! For Eating Us Turkeys Is A Grave Matter Because Turkey Grav(e)y Will Be On Your Lips!” October 14, 2018 = 39 days before Thanksgiving!
It’s closer now to Thanksgiving, and we’re fattening up our fowl!
Each turkey says: “EAT CHICKEN,” and it’s said now with a scrowl!
Turkeys! They used-to- just plead and cry,
But NOW THEY’RE BOLD – We-think-hormones-are-why!
They squawk and bellow – and LAY IT ON THE LINE:
“You rotten humans!! On us you dine!
And-you-THINK no karma doth attend;
Well! Just GET READY – you’ve a bitter end!
For, when you die – and you go to HEAVEN (?)
Who’s at The Gate NOW? It’s-our-grand-pappy RRevan!
RRevan’s our ancestral great, great grand-dad;
When he got to The-Pearly-Gate, Saint Peter he had!!
HE ATE HIM UP-hungrily! and-took-over-his-position,
So THEN – you’ll face our ancestors* with their ROAST-TURKEY-MISSION,
Which is: cook up all humans, who think they’re so smart!
You-don’t-even-know-when you eat us,** you always will start,
Your meals-by-paying-homage – to-our great gran’ pappy,
‘Cause you say: [”R-R-evan Turkey, thanks-a-lot-we’re-happy,
PLEASE bless this juicy-meat!!”] – and RRevan-knows-all-you-say,
For he makes little marks – for any turkey you eat – any festive day,
AND THOSE MARKS ADD RIGHT UP – you fowl (!) human scum!
RRevan Turkey! He’ll roast you all – and stick you in his tum!!” 🙂 – Yipes!!
Postscript: (turkey scratches) THE TURKEY – at The Heavenly Gate – is RRevan (pause) up the culinary thrills! There’ll be a lot of critters eatin’! Human flesh (pause) is on the grills!
* – like RRevan
** – for Thanksgiving Dinner
