Thomas Turkey Avoids the Dreaded Axe

Tom Turkey got lost 'midst the teeming flock,

   Thus, avoiding the dreaded chopping block!

      Hunkering down spared his life,

         Averting the carving knife!

            He now recovers from traumatic shock!

A Thankful Turkey

Written by Gail DeBole

When a turkey, who yearly escapes
From his owner's Thanksgiving plate,
Was asked to reveal
Why he's never a meal
He said, "That much of a turkey I ain't!"

Note: Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November in the United States.  President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed this as an official holiday in 1863.

Which Turkey To Take - a Thanksgiving Limerick

The man had a tough choice to make
Which of the birds should he take?
Both turkeys looked good
But he thought that he should
Take the jenny instead of the jake.

Turkey Day For a Lame Duck

Now pouts the ex-president Trumpty
his turkey-day gravy’s all lumpy
he’s down on his luck
for he’s a lame duck
his a** voters threw in the dumpty

Turkey Trouble

The Christmas turkey was frozen solid and was looking raw and white
So I placed it on a tray at room temperature, and left it thawing overnight
My son came in late and turned up the heating, to a hundred and fifteen
I woke up Christmas morning to a stench, and the turkey had turned green.

Thanksgiving Without Turkey


I sat at the table, eager to eat
To have my fill, right at my seat
My father carved the Turkey
A wonderful sight
My mother asked me “dark meat or white”?
But just before my plate came near
My little dog Edgar pulled up from the rear
He jumped on the table in a single bound
Landing in the middle with nary a sound
He landed on my Turkey 
One and all could see
And right there Edgar decided to pee
I shook in horror, I quaked in fright
But in the end, I knew Edgar was right
He’s just a dog, and did what dogs do
I could not be angry, but I told him to shoo
So mother cleaned the table, and discarded the Turkey
And in it's place we had beef jerky!

Turkey Day

Let’s thank God for this turkey day
But all of the birds have runaway
They must of seen the axe 
Don’t think they could relax
Left all their feathers in the hay

Said the Turkey - Murder

Said the turkey,
Please, Please, Please pardon me.
Look at how I tilt my head in plea!
Y'all are ugly fat-head Killers?
A lot of gall,
even telling God you'll are going to killing me.
You flesh eating devils.
Y'all disgust me.

Turkey Breast Best

Turkey Breast Best

For Thanksgiving what I like best
Has to be a big turkey breast
Or if all eaten can surely rely
On a great, good looking thigh.

Myself have not been a wing man
Being pilot was part of my plan
And if I have to be more direct
Can't stand either back or neck.

Now my wife is a cooking wizard
Is great with giblets and gizzard
Ended up huffing and stuffing
After eating all of the stuffing.

Could it be possible that a canary
Likes turkey sandwich with cranberry
She's sweet just like Russell Stover
So why don't you come right over.

It's Turkey Time

Bow your head and pray
Today's Thanksgiving day.

Poor turkey felt the axe
Bet he's sorry he ever hatched.

Mashed potatoes, gravy, yams
Consume mass quantities (But never ham)

Eat real fast and clean your plate
Soon you'll have a tummy ache.

Belch and moan and pop your zipper
'Hey hon, where's the Alka Seltzer?'

Ben Franklin's Turkey

Witty Founding Father Ben Franklin

Gave his contemporaries many a grin.

Although he wanted the turkey to be our national bird,

Fortunately John Adam’s “eagle” had the final word.

Tom Turkey Evades the Axe Again

Tom Turkey's doom again was kept at bay

   He wasn't picked for Thanksgiving entree

      Hunkered down to keep his head

         His pals were victims instead

            Tom survived to live for another day

I Am Turkey

I am turkey
hear me roar,
we stand in numbers
too great to ignore

Please don't take the axe,
the gun, or the knife -
we are all just trying
to live out a turkey life

We never did anything wrong
to be cooked and sitting on your table,
we cannot understand why
you all love the Honeysuckle label

So have some other Thanksgiving dinner
it won't hurt you to try -
how about a McDonald's Big Mac
with a super-sized French fry?

Talking Turkey

Earth glows in the dark like a bauble
Though sometimes its orbit will wobble
In Glasgow they came
To allocate blame
Knowing Scotch can make eagles gobble!

Don T Be a Turkey

DON’T BE A TURKEY O Tom, he has wisdom and marmite. Others they like spreading delight- ful vegemite, which seems quite spite- ful. Still Tom does think they’ll try a bite. What think you, of stuffing a turkey? You’d rather eat marmite on crusty thick bread? A smile and all the while your friends, over vegemite, lusty. So don’t be a turkey, dear Tom, sir. That jar, with its cap, away with her. Your friends be snick- ering…a trick, while they have a lick of their spoons, sir. 10/14/2022

Turkey Tom's Tiny Tidbits, For Carol

"Anything i can do, you could do better!" 
I'm different.  I like my sushi well done.
"Sure you're right!...Who cares?"
I'm as wise as a potato chip.
Is it illegal to leave a night-light on in the day?
"If music be the food of love...I'm tone deaf."
So what? I guess my self-confidence made me inferior.
I hired an interior decorator for my refrigerator.
I spend my time figuring out how to spend my time!!

good day , Carol....

Cold Turkey

When you quit smoking, you always go cold turkey and you become very mean.
Every time you try to quit, you turn into a monster when you go without nicotine.
The last time you quit, you threw the microwave and hit me in the head.
I was out for days, the doctor thought that I was dead.
You washed my clothes in gasoline and when I put the on, you lit a match.
You become a ***** when you quit cold turkey, use a damn nicotine patch!

(This is a fictional poem)

Ode To a Turkey

Gobble gobble here comes trouble
Every year this time comes a struggle
Will I be the one for the pot this time?
Is the major worry on my mind
O where can I run and hide?
When my girth is so wide?

Listen please to some sound advice
Why celebrate Thanksgiving with my demise?
Why not choose a chicken? You would be surprised
More time spent with family dinner ready in a flash
You would be ‘going green’ you’ll save some cash
Just imagine what you’d do with all that stash

pilgrim turkeys sensing dread

scurry into an old shed

farmer hear our plea

nest we in a tree

and dear friend we are ill bred.

To a Turkey

Noble, regal tasseled turkey prominent, pendulous wattle, garb of iridescent feathers, and bright red dangly snood. Your stately gait pleases my eye and your beloved, peculiar gobble sends particular pleasure to my ear May you forever strut your stuff(ing)!

Turkey Jitters

At Christmastide the family felt dread,
As they sat around a fantastic spread,
As dad carved the turkey,
It spoke up quite quirky,
“Do you fancy swopping places instead?”
