UNUSUAL DESSERT FOR WFW

Today Words For Wednesday is a combination with our THANKSGIVING in the U.S.A.
 
Thank you Carolyn McBride for the challenging words today.


complicated, rodent, humor, theology, nature, sarcastic

UNUSUAL DESSERT by Granny Annie
  
Another Thanksgiving was here.
Always a gathering quite drastic
Family humor leaning toward
The bitter and sarcastic.

Mother always dreaded
How it was so complicated.
She entered her room this year
With a plan to stay barricaded

Politics and theology
Would stir up nomenclature
And voices rose in argument
It was the family nature.

Now time for the feast
Thus entered an odor potent.
Instead of turkey for the mob
Mom had baked a rodent.

You are all a bunch of rats!
Holding the platter smiling wide
Her laughter echoed loudly
As she turned to run and hide.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL AND MAY YOUR CELEBRATION INCLUDE TURKEY AND ALL THE TRIMMINGS.

  2. Thank you so much Tabor:-) Sadly your blogs are still scrolling near the bottom of my sidebar as if you haven't posted since October. I can't imagine how this has happened and will keep and eye out of your newest posts.
