    Thanksgiving Humor

    I burned the crescent rolls
    and then the tears flowed.
    We knew they were inevitable
    She was definitely on overload.

    Too many people in the house,
    way too much commotion,
    "You brought a dish not on my menu?"
    Oh god, the tears became an ocean.

    "I'll just scrape the burned part off..."
    evoked another muffled sob.
    "My dinner's ruined and nobody cares
    I'm just too old for this job."

    "Think I'll have a glass of wine,
    care to join me, sis?
    Think we're going to need it
    to survive this Thanksgiving bliss!"

    "I'm never doing this again,
    I cannot take the stress...
    To host a family gathering
    puts me under such duress!"

    A year since then has passed,
    my telephone starts to ring.
    "Coming home for Thanksgiving?"
    "Of course, what should I bring?"

    I really liked this poem and know how stressful the holidays can be. Fortunately for me, I don't have big gatherings anymore.

    Thanks! True story BTW!

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
