Blonde on the Prairie: All People Are Needy

November 16, 2012

Out on the prairie my Husband and me.
Are stuck in a our cabin with a very urgent plea.
We have no place to go –not family at least.
To sit and enjoy a good turkey feast.

Now truth be told we’re really quite quirky.
So you shant put it past us that we’d eat something other than turkey.
Pizza Dave makes a frozen pepperoni to boast.
And it’s not beyond me to just eat some garlic toast.

My burly husband deserves something much more inviting.
We wish a church was serving food-it would be well worth the tithing.
Those church ladies can cook this is for certain.
