Haiku Poem

tasty turkey
seven faces all frown
thanks given


うまくても しちめんちょう は しぶい かお

Thanksgiving is a special holiday for giving thanks in America. Turkey is usually eaten on this occasion. Turkey tastes terrific but the poor birds must sacrifice for this event. Since the Japanese think of turkeys as having seven faces, I can imagine all of them frowning as Thanksgiving approaches. Thank you turkeys for helping us all to give thanks.
