Turkey Perceptions

Tell me, Mr. Turkey,

Don’t you feel afraid

When you hear us talking

About the plans we’ve made?

Can’t you hear us telling

How we’re going to eat

Cranberries and stuffing

With our turkey meat?

Turkey, heed my warning

Better fly away

Or you will be sorry

On Thanksgiving Day.

Malibuite, I heard your warning

About Thanksgiving Day

Fear I not it is your City Council

That had better fly away.

Can’t they hear your elders

Telling the needs of Seniors gray

Or can’t they heed parents yelling

Our kids lack a safe site to play.

So thank you for your forewarning

But on Thanksgiving I shall stay

For it is not on me there will be dining

Come next Election Day.
