Let's Talk Turkey

I called up Mike the other day and asked if I could stop by.













And while he picked up all the "poopie",

He told me to go and say "Hi"........

To all the animals he has over there

But when I saw this one, I couldn't help but stare!

I've never seen a Turkey so large

My goodness, he was as big as a barge!

"Sixty pounds," said Mike with his big old grin

For goodness sake, it made me feel thin!

"He likes you, " said Mike, as the bird started to "talk"

"You see" he went on, "even got a John Wayne walk."

For you see, where he came from wasn't so great

And now Mike is talking about giving him a mate!

Yes, Mike took him in and gave him a new home

He didn't want the poor fellow to be all alone.

But before I knew it, it was time to say "bye"

I hopped in my car and just kept saying "Oh, my!"




P.S.  I'm heading over to Verde Farm  for Farm Friend Fridays.  See you there!

Hope he avoids the Thanksgiving rush! I think he'd feed a gathering! He sure is pretty!

Hmmmm.. turkeys aren't the most attractive animal in the kingdom, are they?
But I'm glad he liked you and talked to you -- love the poetry!

I've never seen a turkey up close. His poor little bird legs must be straining under that weight! Building up the old drumsticks is he?

Once he has a lady friend, you might want to take a stick with you next time you visit -- they get a bit grumpy when the ladies are around. :)

i was attacked at age 8 by a turkey exactly like this one, it ripped my easter dress to shreds, so he is not any thing i would want to visit. good for Mike for rescuing him.

He might just be too big and old to taste good. Might save his life...

Ever since I "discoverd" it via ForestWalk/Laura K. I've enjoyed your blog. I've been blogging for nearly a year now & am still learning all the ins & outs of it. Could you tell me how you put in the section titled "You Might Also Like" at the end of your posts? I think it might be one of the gadgets, but have yet to figure that out. I'd appreciate your input...pop over & visit my blog sometime.

I can certainly see why you would stare at him. He's very homely.
