New Thanksgiving Day
By Arlene Millman

This may sound a little quirky
If you're living as a turkey
Thanksgiving's not your favorite day
Unless you quickly get away.

Someplace that is safe and sound
Incognito, no trace found
Grateful to escape your fate
Laying on some dinner plate.

Time to start a new traditiion
Helping turkeys find a mission
Greater than just being a food
A cause to elevate the mood.

What would everybody say
To a new Thanksgiving Day?
When every turkey is set free
To live and love its family.
