Now A Bit Of Nonsense

If I were a turkey now Thanksgiving's nigh
I'd be worried that I might end up in a pie!
But if you should catch me
and pluck out my feathers -
then I'd need  a warm coat
to wear out in all weathers!



This is down to the Monday's Child prompt for this week, which gave me a chance to give my blogpals  across the pond a little grin.   The illustration is by Michelle Lana.

  13. Very adroit, Fraulien Jinksy. I'm thinking of a ditty beginning -
    "Oh say can you see my fine Thanksgiving Pie"
    but I'm worried that our friends across the Pond might take umbrage . .
