A Thanksgiving Reminder

Another Thanksgiving
and here we are
gathered round the old table
the grandest feast by far

The turkey, the stuffing
yams and mashed taters
gravy all over it
pumpkin pie we'll eat later

Yeah feeding our faces
till our bellies are full
yet still making an attempt
at just one more spoonful

Yes today seems so perfect
all this family and food
and it's thankful we are
for this fall interlude

But there are others less fortunate
who have no houses or homes
living out on the streets
cold and alone

Scrounging for food
and a place to get warm
without all the comforts
we believe are the norm

Please enjoy todays feast
but share when you can
though those folks may be homeless
they're still your fellow man
