Close your eyes and picture this
A Thanksgiving dinner filled with bliss,
Relatives hugging and laughing with cheer
Sounds like cards slapping, and kids playing near

Aromatic scents of cake and apple pie
Ham, dressing, and collards, all side by side,
Deviled eggs filled with pickles and spice
Hot, steaming macaroni only family makes right

Soft textured cornbread, sticky barbecue ribs
Lines and lines of people try to get first dibs
A memorable Thanksgiving, where family members spend time
A Thanksgiving tradition passed down the line.

"Animals our not ours to eat, wear or torture, they help us and our environment, and we need to take care of their environment and give them love in return"

Great! But could use a little more tweeking ;)

Awwwww. This is sweet. I got kind of hungry reading this. I'm sorry, true story. Lol. But anyway, I thought it was cute and it has a wonderful rhyme scheme.
