Thanksgiving Verse
This collection of verse began at our Board Meeting on 22 Sep 2002 while we were planning our annual Thanksgiving Dinner.  You are welcome to add your short poem to this collection.

We don't serve the breast,
We don't serve the thigh;
To grace our Thanksgiving table,
No animal will die.
~Roberta Schiff

Turkeys are blessed,
'Cause we treat them as guests.
~Frank L. Hoffman

Our turkeys won't be blue,
This Thanksgiving 2002.
~Rae Schlecht

At our Thanksgiving Dinner,
The turkey is a winner!
~Frank L. Hoffman

Turkeys we don't breed,
For vegans have no need.
~Frank L. Hoffman

With profound apologies for an appalling piece of verse - which I couldn't
resist writing, but which has convinced me to stick to prose in future!

Gobble, gobble, turkey dinner
If it's the turkey gobblin' you ain't no sinner

Turkey, turkey, eat away
If you're still chompin' there's no debt to pay

Sentient friend, come join our kin
We'll knock the stuffin' out of the peas, potatoes and pumpkin.

Yeah, yeah, I know, get back to writing in a genre where I'm not quite so
~Rod Preece - 24 Sep 2002

We look forward to hearing from you
