Thanksgiving Poem

Thanks for the everyday easy type things:
iced coffee, elmo movies, all the small blessings
Thanks for appliances that help with the work,
like washing and scrubbing and picking up dirt.
Thanks for the clothes and the roof and the food,
all of which help to maintain a good mood.
Thanks for the City so long in the makin',
Thanks to the Saints and the Dome they be shakin',
Thanks for our grumpy old man of a cat,
so fuzzy and lovely and well... used to be fat.
Thanks for the husband who brings home the dough,
who takes out the trash and sweeps the flo'.
Thanks for the kids who provide many laughs,
can't think of a better place to spend all our cash.
We're thankful for all of our family and friends,
And short of more rhymes our poem now ends.

Thanks for being you so down to the deed.
Thanks for being a better poet than I.
