The poem “Turkey Complaint” was read.
“They fatten me up, they sharpen the axe. I’m getting so nervous I just can’t relax. I know what I’ll do, I’ll hide in the hay and then they can’t find me on Thanksgiving Day.
A pleasant aroma is filling the air, why must they have turkey? I don’t think it’s fair. But I’ve got my rights, I’ll start a campaign and encourage all turkeys to help me complain. I’ll go on a diet, get skinny and thin and I’ll even lose my double chin with Diet Rite Cola.
If at first I don’t succeed I’ll try it again. There may be no hope, but I think it’s worth trying. I’ll do anything to keep me from dying.
In case my plan fails and action gets rash, just look for me soon in some leftover hash.”
