It's Finally Here

by Barb Hensongispsaca

"Thanksgiving's here. Let's shout for joy!"
cries every little girl and boy.
There's always plenty food to eat,
and Grandma's cooking can't be beat.

First Grandma mixes stuffing up,
then stuffs the turkey with a cup.
She wraps the ham in honey sauce.
This time of year she spares no cost.

A green bean casserole she'll bake.
She won't forget the chocolate cake.
The corn she'll fix on cob and not
with yams and gravy piping hot.

Then home made noodles, biscuits, too,
some cabbage and some honeydew,
sweet coleslaw that will blow your mind,
hot squash and taters - all four kinds.

There's pies and cakes and jello molds,
some cookies that are sliced and rolled,
two salads topped with dressing light,
and fancy marshmallow delight.

But now a problem has arose,
'cause Grams has gout in her big toe.
The supper now falls back on me,
and I can't cook a thing, you see.

I could just have it catered in.
They'll never know just where it's been.
All thirty-six plan to attend,
and some will even bring a friend.

Her festive planning is complete
and everyone's reserved their seat.
But even with her helping me,
all things will burn and boil ... you'll see.

I have no choice, I must go on
so I will cook from dusk to dawn.
I don't know how the food will be,
I'll try and we'll just have to see.
