The Turkey Snatcher
While we relaxed in the living room, another family member raided the kitchen.
’Twas an hour after dinner and full we all felt; Grandpa and Dad had undone their belts. Mom and I turned on the big football game And tried to remember our team mascot’s name.
Out in the kitchen we heard such a clatter; There the dog had found the turkey left on a platter. Some of us rushed from the room with a frown. Grandpa forgot his belt so his pants fell down.
The dog we all chased at a very hurried pace As pieces of turkey were left all over the place. In the dog’s mouth, the turkey was held high; As I reached out I was able to save a thigh.
Stuffing was flung all over the floor
As the frightened dog ran for the little pet door.
