MommyQ’s Ode to Thanksgiving

turkeyday

Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashers and pie

Smiling at your crazy relatives as the time slowly passes by

Noticing lettuce in Aunt Sally’s teeth

Asking politely for a slice of roast beef

Debating whether to get another helping of green beans

Knowing you won’t be fitting in your favorite skinny jeans

Listening to the same old stories you hear every year

Subtly reaching for another cold beer

Family gossip launches laughter

Politicians always get a bad rap

Tryptophan making me sleepy

It’s time for a nap
