An Ode to a Turkey

There are few creatures
More noble in their carriage
And confident in deportment
Than a wild turkey.
O turkey!  Majestic animal!
You stride across the landscape
With aristocratic strut
And noblesse oblige.
The asphalt shines
In moist ebony paens
To your glory.
O noblest fowl!
O cause for thanksgiving!
O poultresque specimen!
You glory of my sight!
You turkey in the mist!

Wow you are very talented. Do you come up with those poems yourself? I didn't like poetry when I was in school but now it's interesting.

I LOVE the name of your blog. I have some dead poems - may I send them over?

Seriously - nice blog...

"Cause for thanksgiving" an intentional pun one assumes? Poor turkey! They do taste divine with stuffing :-)
