[I am so… so… sorry]
After you lose your zeal for living
offer to cook for Thanksgiving
Start by cooking vegetables that, as such,
no one is ever going to touch.
There’s delicious stuffing
But, you keep having to find the two-year old so you get nuffing
Still, being with your family is fun
And, two hours into the meal, the turkey is finally done.
The aunt brings a store-bought pie to the feast
to prove the “least she could do” is literally the least…
When we are finished, the kids are too stuffed to use their phones
and we lay there and communicate through a series of groans
The family leaves me with warmth and good wishes
And, two days of washing dishes…
