Giving Thanks: A Thanksgiving Poem

By Deborah E. Joyce


Thanksgiving is over, I’m stuffed to the gills

Ate here with the seniors, I’ve had my fill

went to sleep early, up at four

my body, tired, was very sore


Went to the computer with pad and phone

on Black Friday, I never leave home

Avoiding the onslaught of shoppers in droves

I brew the coffee, stay warm in my robe


The dog ate my mattress, that’s the 1st stop

Sleepy’ is where I will shop

coupons, rebates, I find them all

presents to buy, most I recall


Back to the bed, the budgets okay

spent more on that mattress then anything today

now it’s time to decorate-

my Christmas party is at a close date


Before you think this is all about shopping

I’ll tell you a thought in my head that’s been bopping

songs for birthday, Christmas, Easter you see

not for Thanksgiving, how can that be?


I hereby proclaim Thanksgiving the best

far and above all the rest

food, friends, camaraderie

This means so much more to me


Giving thanks for all the days

abundance, joy in many ways

my circle of people, I give you your due

and thanks to you the whole year through

  1. Thanks for your suggestions. One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that banks as well as financial institutions really know the spending routines of consumers as well as understand that many people max away their own credit cards around the vacations. They sensibly take advantage of this particular fact and begin flooding your own inbox as well as snail-mail box along with hundreds of Zero APR credit card offers right after the holiday season finishes. Knowing that if you’re like 98% of all American open public, you’ll leap at the opportunity to consolidate credit debt and move balances to 0 annual percentage rates credit cards. feeeegj – best Headache medications
