Take that "Turkey" wash it good
Handling Big Tom, is rough . .
Clean out his innards, add some salt
Place him in the pan, and stuff. . .
While you prepare, and make ready
Special food, to tempt everyone
With so much to do, keep the pace steady
Donít let things get you . . . Undone
The pies are baking, and Jell-O is set
Sweet potatoes are stewing, real nice
Turkey needs basting, keep that skin wet
Donít forget, the cake has to be iced
Place your fancy tablecloth, just right
Lay the China and Silver, that match
A centerpiece creates, an inviting sight
And napkins, picture a " Pumpkin Patch"
The aroma of turkey, waifs in the air
Water boils, to cook the potatoes
Colorful cole-slaw adds to the flair
Plus a salad with cherry tomatoes
The door bell rings, family arrive
So much talking and chitter-chatters
Telling of the weather, and the drive
Together now, is what really matters
The cheerful feeling, adds a touch
To the festive holiday season . . .
Together, loving and sharing so much
Thankfulness, being the main reason
At the table, holding hands to pray
Surrounded with family, you love
Each thanking God, in their own special way
For His blessings, He sends from above
