“Get ready for the holidays!!!!”, a man frantically says …
You hear it through your theater speakers, and you aren’t even out of your bed.
Outside in your yard, this year’s turkey hears the message blasting hard …
Geez … aren’t we pushing this ahead a tad, I’m not yet dead!
It’s not that the turkey is complaining,
he’d rather live another year without his dinner table phobia.
But it’s his true fear that is coming quite near …
If we eliminate the turkey from the year,
will we start to forget why this country is here?
Respect the turkey …. don’t honor the Thanksgiving Day pre-Black Friday sales. Did the marketing people even realize they are shooting themselves in the foot by basically eliminating the consumer holiday tradition of Black Friday?
