Tom Turkey


Tom turkey dreaded this day but hoping all would go his way

You see, this time of year was Tom’s greatest fear

Yes, Thanksgiving Day would seal Toms fate

His gobbling days were over as he adorned a plate

Yes, he was one handsome fowl until things went afoul



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word turkey.  Please drop by and join the fun at  Patricia’s Place

    Poor Tom, things certainly did go afoul for him as we gobbled up the gobbler. Thanks for sharing with In Other Words.

      Yes, poor Tom. He was a grumpy turkey, though!
