2022 Thanksgiving Times


2022 Thanksgiving Times


A Tuesday near T-Day in the Beach Hut watching a Laker-Suns B-Game hoping a poem will appear
A clarion muse call in these divisive times to cause rancor to disappear
A Red Wave that fizzled in its crest to the House Speaker barely dowse
But by 2020 like Blue margins the Reds have taken over the House
The Senate to in Blue control still maintain
Still to know whether Walker can run through a Warnock tackle to his seat obtain
A time to be thankful for one’s blessings is part of the Thanksgiving name
But also a time for giving time and money to those who do not share the same
Also, a time to be tolerant of those with whom you have disagreed
In these divisive times ad hominem and violent attacks are not what we need
A time to the divisiveness scathing the nation come to an end
A change to without personal attacks trying to solve problems trend
If with a mouth full of turkey trying to chew
It is too hard to with vicious attacks spew
It is time to the over the top rhetoric cease
To focus on “Pass another serving of turkey please”
As the calming wave of L-tryptophan
Slowly after eating spreads across our land
Try to continue to ape the hallowed annual T-Day tradition
Pardon your foes like the two large white turkeys to escape being the day’s main nutrition
