Thanksgiving Psalm

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013: POETRY

by Tom C. Hunley

God gave us stuff
God stuffed us
Give thanks
to God
Stuff turkeys to
stuff us
Thanks God
Thanks turkeys
Give turkey
back to God
God give us enough
stuff
Stuff us
God
God stuffs us turkeys
with Godstuff
Let there be
stuff
God said
Thanks God
and there was
stuff was
God there
God was
God suffered
enough
for us
Thanks God
for giving us enough
forgiving us
for stuff
