Leftovers by Jack Prelutsky
Thanksgiving has been over
for at least a week or two,
but weâ€™re still all eating turkey,
turkey salad, turkey stew,
turkey puffs and turkey pudding,
turkey patties, turkey pies,
turkey bisque and turkey burgers,
turkey fritters, turkey fries.
For lunch our mother made us
turkey slices on a stick,
thereâ€™ll be turkey tarts for supper,
all this turkey makes me sick.
For tomorrow sheâ€™s preparing
turkey dumplings stuffed with peas,
oh I never thought Iâ€™d say this
"Mother! No more turkey... PLEASE!"
