THANKSGIVING DAY IS NOT OPTIONAL

It seems every year Thanksgiving Day gets the brush!
We get Christmas rushed up to
our eyeballs. From Halloween to the yuletide,
you can’t hide tossing aside that one day of thanks.
It would certainly not break any corporate bank,
why the need for greed? No deal is a good deal
at that price! It’s a sad truth that family traditions
end up in critical condition and die a slow
and painful death in a last breath dash to the mall,
all for a cheap electronic windfall! Why do you think
we shroud Friday in a darkened pall? All it takes
is one day to say thank you for the wealth of the other
three hundred-and sixty-four. You can be very sure,
Thanksgiving Day is NOT optional.
