This Is My Annual Tribute To Thanksgiving

Who brought the Spam to the first Thanksgiving?

The Pilgrims brought the Spam I think
The Indian’s brought something to drink
Though history books do not repeat it
There’s more to do with corn then eat it

A spurkey is a wondrous sight
All pink and juicy if cooked right
Shaping it’s a little quirky
But you can make it look like turkey

So what’s your pleasure, breast or thigh?
Or other part you’d like to try?
No light or dark meat, it’s a shame
All the parts taste just the same

But best of all, there is no waste
And also, you don’t have to baste
But unlike birds raised in the coop
There are no bones for spurkey soup

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer .wordpress.com as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
