Long before Halloween had come in the Fall
Christmas decorations filled every mall.
We no longer celebrate one Holiday at a time
And to me, that seems like a moral crime.
The commercial side seems to overrule
And we the citizens are expected to play the fool.
No one seems to care anymore at all
That Thanksgiving is also in the Fall.
I plea to all who enjoy Life and Living
To remember why we celebrate Thanksgiving.
It Is for the bountiful life and gift of love
Sent to us from God above!
But Thanksgiving seems to be a thing long forgotten
In a land where we are all spoiled rotten.
We take for granted our very lives
Not to mention, parents, children, husbands, and wives.
Therefore, I plea to all who enjoy Life and Living
Remember, Thanksgiving is for Thanks Giving!
