With Rosy Cheeks, I stuffed the Turkey (and the turkey stuffed me)


Happy Turkey Lovers Month to all!
Although, it’s a celebration of sycophants
They ridiculed my misunderstanding
I wasn’t the only one with a bird in his pants

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet.”

Roses are red
Who cares what violets do
It’s all about the roses
You all know it’s true


Turkey Rose

I once had a wild turkey
I named the bird, Rose
The poultry tried to drown me
Or so the story goes

It was during a shipwreck
She found a floating door
There was space for me
Of that much I was sure

She wouldn’t budge an inch
Or let me climb aboard
I told her that I loved her
That, she just ignored

I could go on no longer
I sunk into the sea
I looked up at her face
She smiled down at me

I curse that feathery bitch
From my watery grave
I have wet dreams of thanksgiving
And her own bone picked grave
