Popular Thanksgiving Dinner Table Poems

Turkey Trouble
We cooked turkey, nice and hot,
Nice and hot, nice and hot.
We cooked turkey nice and hot
On Thanksgiving Day.

We eat turkey a whole lot,
A whole lot, a whole lot.
We eat turkey a whole lot.
It will not go away!

Sandwiches and soup are fine.
By the way, would you like mine?
Pot pie lasts a long, long time,
It's turkey every day!

Turkey Trouble A Thanksgiving Poem
"How big is that turkey?"
Papa did ask
"About a 20 pounder."
Mama said, "Don't sass!"
"Will it fit in the oven?"
Papa poked fun
"Never you mind."
Mama said, "I'll let you know when it's done."
Hours later Papa said,
"Isn't it ready yet?"
"Get out of my kitchen!"
Mama yelled, "You pest!"
"It's starting to get dark."
Papa said with a scowl
"If it takes much longer
We'll be eating with the owls!"
"You can't rush perfection."
Mama said with a grin
"Just sit and be still
The news is about to begin."
Papa asleep on the couch
Mama asleep in her chair
Turkey for breakfast
A Thanksgiving beyond compare!
