“Early bird” haiku

Gather round, ask kids,
“What do we say first?” That’s right:
“Pass the cranberries!”

Turkey, dressing, spuds
Yams, beans, rolls — big bird won’t be
The only thing stuffed

Eat hearty, drink deep
Soon enough we’ll collapse in
Haze of tryptophan

Don’t forget dessert
Apple, cherry, pecan, mince
Pie with your Cool Whip

Circumference over
Diameter of squash-gourd
Equals pumpkin pi

If it’s my last meal
Skip the urn, keep my ashes
In a gravy boat
