Dad could write some funny poems!!  This one is about an old brown chicken and a turkey  in deep conversation!!!
"Supreme Sacrifice"

Said the old brown chicken
To the turkey in the pen.
"Well, I see Thanksgiving
is almost here again".
Said the turkey to the hen,
"Yes, and I am in a spot,
For I think they're gonna use me,
Cause they look at me alot".
Said the hen to the turkey,
"Now it's not for me to say,
But everybody's calling
Thanksgiving, turkey day".
Said the turkey to the hen,
"Now I don't mind being nice,
But I hate to think that I'm the one
to make the sacrifice".
Said the hen to the turkey,
"It looks like that's your fate,
And they tell me on a platter,
You look really great".
Said the turkey to the hen,
"Now, maybe you don't know it,
But when they get me on the platter,
If I'm bothered, I won't show it".
