The Turkey’s Lament
With Christmas fast approaching, this very topical and amusing poem about turkey, is written by Claire Baldry:
The Turkey’s Lament
On this day in mid November,
I’m not feeling very perky,
For my face is on a poster,
Which says ‘Fresh and Free Range Turkey’
You can order me for Christmas,
To feed up your son and daughter,
No-one cares how I will feel,
As they drive me to the slaughter
So, my dears, I want to tell you
How much better it would be,
If you ordered a large chicken
For your celebration tea
Or a guinea fowl or pheasant,
For the dinner at your house,
I am sure the kids would love a meal
Of gravy served with grouse
But as turkey is tradition,
And that’s what you have chosen,
I thought I would just mention
That we are much cheaper frozen
