No Time to Say Grace

No Time to Say Grace

by Patricia G. Barnes

Sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner at one o’clock

Gotta get to work at a  quarter to two.

Can’t say grace when I’m in this race.

No time to catch up with Aunt May or Uncle Harry.

Pass the  gravy and please don’t tarry.

Christmas is a month away.

Got  lots of empty shelves to stock.

With useless crap that must be bought

By shoppers hunting for deals and  bargains

On the one day of the year

That was set aside  to count our blessings.

Skip the small talk and pass the dressing!
