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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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?

  5. 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. :)

  12. 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.
