symbol of bounty
the free range turkey becomes
a tryptophan nap

(okay, this was not my idea. I was doodling around and found Pensieve's request for a Thanksgiving limmerick. I couldn't think of anything that rhymed with caramelized shallot reduction flambé so I went with haiku).

(I have a crush on your parenthetical statement.)

(and your haiku, too ;). )

(and the Pensieve Poetic License motto is "No rules. Just Write.", which is exactly what you did.)

Well she did say NO RULES.

Well done. Now why didn't I think of that?

Pamela said...

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz (gearing up for the tryptophan. Sounds like Super Bird)

Kim said...

Another rebel! I love your haiku and your spirit!

thefoodsnob said...

Love it!
Now I'm hungry :(



Sandy said...

I'm thinking that without rebels we wouldn't have had Thanksgiving! Great poem!
