Uncle Larry's Holiday Joy
It happened once on Thanksgiving,
eating turkey and dressing that's living.
At the end of the meal, everyone stuffed their bellies,
with homemade bread, and candied jellies.
But wait, the turkey neck is still on the platter,
Uncle Larry thought, 'everyone is full, it won't matter.'
The neck in his hand, he said '' No one will miss'er,''
And that's when he got, a big fist in the kisser.
The fight was on, and food was flying through the air,
Aunt Ruth ended up, with mash potatoes in her hair.
Uncle Ben had his face, pushed down into his plate,
'' Watch out for those beans, oh man, its to late!''
Those are the things, you remember as a boy,
of turkey, fun things, fights, and holiday joy.
