Tipsy Turkey Day

T’was the week of Thanksgiving, and all through the house,

People were blogging and clicking their mouse.

Looking for last-minute things they could share,

And figuring out just what dish to prepare.

Family soon would arrive at their door,

To eat lots of food and to drink even more.

Yes, the holidays are such a two-sided sword,

Eating gravy and taters and pies made of gourd.

But then there are in-laws with “helpful advice,”

Or that weird cousin’s kid with a head full of lice.

But seeing it’s only for one day a year,

Just muster a smile and shotgun a beer.

Then go and head over to read for some fun,

About my Thanksgiving spent with a drunk nun.

In the Powder Room is where I’m having my say,

So click here and then have a great Turkey Day!
