(Okay, going to try this again. Maybe the prompt and poem will take this time. I tried more than 6 hours ago, and they didn't.)

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks for all the well wishes! (If you're
interested in Christmas music, check out my personal blog.) Since I'm still up,
I figured I'd get an early start on today's prompt and poem.


For
today's prompt, write an "on the run" poem. You can decide who or what is on the
run and what might be causing them to run. For myself, I had to link today's
poem to my poem yesterday. But you can run in any direction you
want.

Here's my attempt:

"The aftermath"

A turkey can never
really rest
even after surviving the guests
when Thanksgiving is
through
because there's Christmas too
and hungry mouths that crave turkey
breasts.
