Thank someone:
“Thank the moon, thank the sun.
Most of all, thank someone.
Thank the stars high above,
One for everyone you love.”

Thanksgiving and turkeys

Turkeys are not thankful.

The Little Girl and the Turkey (by Dorothy Aldis)

The little girl said
As she asked for more:
"But what is the Turkey
Thankful for?"

Point of View (by Shel Silverstein)

Thanksgiving dinner's sad and thankless
Christmas dinner's dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey's point of view.

Sunday dinner isn't sunny
Easter feasts are just bad luck
When you see it from the viewpoint
Of a chicken or a duck.

Oh how I once loved tuna salad
Pork and lobsters, lamb chops too
Till I stopped and looked at dinner
From the dinner's point of view.
