Next Funny Thanksgiving Poems

Grandma’s (or Grandpa’s)

I like the taste of turkey
Any time throughout the year
But it never seems to taste as good
As when Thanksgiving’s here.
Could be it’s all the trimmings
That are cooked with it to eat-
But I think it’s eating at Grandma’s house
That makes it such a treat.

Recipe For Thanksgiving

A generous cup of blessings,
A tablespoon of reflection,
A good helping of hugs & laughter,
A handful of memories together,
A pint of time with friends & family,
Mix with love & forgiveness.

Mr. Turkey

(To the tune of Are You Sleeping?)
Mr. Turkey, Mr. Turkey
Run away, Run away
If you don’t be careful
You will be a mouthful
Thanksgiving Day.

Funny Thanksgiving Blessing

May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes n’ gravy have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious,
May your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off your thighs.

Mr. Turkey Better Watch Out

Mr. Turkey, better watch out.
Thanksgiving Day is coming.
If you’re not careful, you’ll end up
In someone’s hungry tummy!
Mr. Turkey, run, run, run.
Please run away and hide.
Mr. Turkey, run, run, run.
Don’t wait around outside.

Turkeys Letter To G-d

Dear Lord,
We’re writing about some concerns I have as a turkey. It seems that in your infinite wisdom, you decided to make us fat, flightless, and delicious. Did we say something to make you mad?
Sincerely yours with much love,
The Turkeys

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble (Funny Thanksgiving Poems)

A turkey is a funny bird,
Its head goes wobble, wobble,
All it knows is just one word,
Gobble, gobble, gobble.

If Turkeys Thought

If turkeys thought,
they’d run away,
A week before Thanksgiving Day.
But turkeys can’t anticipate,
And so there’s turkey on my plate.

‘Twas The Night Of Thanksgiving

‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backward, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned–the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might.
Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door,
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
pickles and carrots, beans, and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
till all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.
I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees…
happy eating to all—pass the cranberry sauce, please!

Turkey In The Barnyard

Turkey in the barnyard, what does he say?
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble all day.
Turkey on the table, what do I say?
Yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy, yummy all day.
Turkey in my tummy, what do I say?
I ate too much on Thanksgiving Day!

Five Little Turkeys (Funny Thanksgiving Poems)

5 little turkeys standing by the door,
One waddled off, and then there were 4.
4 little turkeys under a tree,
One waddled off, and then there were 3.
3 little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, and then there were 2.
2 little turkeys in the noonday sun,
One waddled off, and then there was 1.
One little turkey better run away,
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

Just Like That
(Sung to Are You Sleeping)

Mr. Turkey, Mr. Turkey
Nice and fat, nice and fat
I am going to eat you
I am going to eat you
Just like that.
Just like that.
