VERSE WITHOUT MUSIC

'TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING
DID END AND DID SPARE,
AS MY FATHER LAY MOANING,
SPROUT OUT IN HIS CHAIR. {SPRAWLED?}
HIS BELT WAS ALL THROBBING,
HIS FACE WAS ALL PLUSHED {FLUSHED?}
I KNEW IN A MOMENT
THAT HE'D SURELY BUST.
THEN OUT OF THE SILENCE,
CAME A KABOOM
TURKEY AND CRANBERRIES,
ALL OVER THE ROOM.
THE DOCTORS THEY SAVED HIM,
AND ARE STILL HERE TO SAY,
NEVER EAT A WHOLE TURKEY
ON THANKSGIVING DAY.
