Talking The Turkey Shot out of the Oven

I recited this poem for a 4-H Talent show. Thought someone might enjoy it.

The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven


The turkey shot out of the oven
and rocketed into the air,
it knocked every plate off the table
and partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner
and burst with a deafening boom,
then splattered all over the kitchen
completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the walls and the window
it totally coated the floor,
there was turkey attached to the ceiling,
where there'd never been turkey before.

It blanketed every appliance,
It smeared every saucer and bowl,
there wasn't a way I could stop it,
that turkey was out of control.

I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure,
and thought with chagrin as I mopped
that I'd never again stuff a turkey
with popcorn that had not been popped!!!!


Grace.

(Did you guys think about having your own accounts and being cartwheelmac and cartwheelmac2? You guys made me curious if others on the board also share accounts???)

Yes we thought about having our own accounts but we thought it would be fun to share an account. I don't know if anyone else shares though.
