    THANKSGIVING AVICIDE

    They associate
    divine thanksgiving
    with the turkey
    named Bonaparte
    as they tear
    his bones apart
    *
    Footnote:
    FDR used to celebrate
    Thanksgiving annually
    in Warm Springs, Georgia.
    He presided over the dinner
    first joking about distributing
    the much desired spinach
    and then said (paraphrased)
    ‘and now we murder the
    bird’ as he stuck the carving
    knife into the bird’s carcass.

    OPEN FACED SANDWICH

    The sandwich was advertised
    as open faced
    but the cow had been
    beheaded
