Turkey Trot!

Wild majestic feathered beast

Romping and roosting in Fall leaves

Cocking neck and head to and fro

Dancing like Beyonce, freshest flow


Oh, two step turkey deadly move

Owner’s got him caged and cooped

No trust for the hands that feed

Those from that which will bleed!


Dancing turkey, break a sweat

Gobble gobble without regret

Song of last dance sweet and long

Crush leaves beneath like King Kong


Stump of tree, painted hue of red

No honor for that which was bred

Sleep sweet wild bird of bestead

Mankind soon will have thee head


Beautiful beast, trophy on silver platter

Foes forgotten the blood they did splatter

Feather plucked turkey, bare and naked

Trust your soul cannot be forsaken


Foes give thanks, praising their own lives

While wild turkey’s wings are knifed

Dressed in gravy, ever so eloquently

Tortured turkey, now delicious delicacy
