Approaching Thanksgiving Thoughts

Approaching Thanksgiving Thoughts

We have just concluded a campaign in seemed eternity with bitterness and mudslinging that never would end
As we approach Thanksgiving, a time now to a different message among all of us,  after reflection, to send
A time to pause and the true nature of who we are to reveal
A time to come together, a time to the political scars heal
Politicians no matter how worshipped or despised
Whether deemed most foolish or most wise
Come and go but the ship of state and our daily lives sail on
Hopefully now to a less bitter and much more prosperous dawn
We as Americans are a hardy and achieving lot
We can achieve any of the goals we have sought
Time to have a little less Blue and a little less Red
Time to shake hands or hug and have more purple instead
If we as a nation can have a president that annually does something truly absurd
To in front of national TV grant a presidential pardon to a huge Thanksgiving bird
Then we can still the partisan tongues and pens and grab the forks and have the voices of thanks and giving be heard
Like the Pilgrims years ago know that with love and compassion for our fellows a more prosperous future can be insured
Happy Thanksgiving to all
Sate on and prepare to storm Black Friday’s malls
