Thanksgiving for All
By Mary Gilmore

Turkey and trimmings do not equal gratitude.
Genuine thoughtfulness springs from an attitude.
Turkeys are happiest roaming the range;
Roasting a bird is barbaric and strange.

So show your Thanksgiving
In life-loving moods.
Find happier living
From organic foods.
Let all of God's creatures
Be happy as you.
Their short lifetime features
God's rich blessings, too.
