When Under Knife (Tom, the Turkey)

by louis gander  
11/22/2014 / Holidays


If Tom, the turkey, you had been -
what would you tell the Butcher when
he raised his knife Thanksgiving Day?
Well, listen to what 'Tom' would say:
---
"Remember children, love your mom.
Respect her as you did this 'tom'.
Oh, don't be selfish. Don't be mean
and don't be giddy or obscene.

There's something I must let them do
and some day you may need to too.
You'll know, one day, what it's about
but do not fear and do not pout.

We sacrifice for those we love
as Jesus did once up above
when He was hung upon that tree
for people all around you see.

So do not think about yourselves.
Protect those eggs there on the shelves.
And live a life that God can bless,
a life of love and faithfulness."
---
At that, the butcher raised his knife
and ended then, a fulfilled life
that blessed the hungry, cold and weak.
When under knife, how would you speak?
