Happy Thanksgiving (standard:poetry, 97 words)
Author: Reid LaurenceAdded: Nov 11 2010Views/Reads: 1439/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
We all tell each other to have a happy Thanksgiving, but what were the first ones really like?

From dinner guests 

To enemies 

What a thing perceive 

And all about 

The table then 

In lieu of passing peas 

Said tempers rose eventually 

And brought friends to their knees 

Oh what a way 

To treat someone 

Who did once grace the table 

Finding little peace again 

To think we are unable 

The color skin is so abused 

To cause such undue harm 

In place of turkey, corn and bread 

Scythe people like a farm 

And where this has directed 

A path and course to fear 

The cycle does repeat itself 

The same from year to year
