Two Poems

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 lobster, lamb chops too
'Til I stopped and looked at dinner
from the dinner's point of view.

-Shel Silverstein

Shake and shake the ketchup bottle
None'll come, and then a lot'll

-Richard Armour
