Golden Oldie

What if it had been Three Wise Women
instead of Three Wise Men?

They would have asked directions
Arrived on time
Helped deliver the baby
Cleaned the stable
Made a casserole, and
Brought practical gifts!

When I was a young turkey, new to the coop,
My big brother Mike took me out on the stoop,

Then he sat me down, and he spoke real slow,
And he told me there was something that I had to know.

His look and his tone I will always remember,
When he told me of the horrors of Black November:

"Come about August, now listen to me,
Each day you'll get six meals instead of just three,

"And soon you'll be thick, where once you were thin,
And you'll grow a big rubbery thing under your chin.

"And then one morning, when you're warm in your bed,
In'll burst the farmer's wife, and hack off your head.

"Then she'll pluck out all your feathers so you're bald 'n
And scoop out all your insides and leave ya lyin' in the

"And then comes the worst part," he said, not bluffing,
"She'll spread your cheeks and pack your rear with

Well, the rest of his words were too grim to repeat,
I sat on the stoop like a winged piece of meat,

And decided on the spot that to avoid being cooked,
I'd have to lay low and remain overlooked.

I began a new diet of nuts and granola,
High-roughage salads, juice, and diet cola;

And as they ate pastries, chocolates, and crepes,
I stayed in my room doing Jane Fonda tapes.

I maintained my weight of two pounds and a half,
And tried not to notice when the bigger birds laughed;

But 'twas I who was laughing, under my breath,
As they chomped and they chewed, ever closer to death.

And sure enough, when Black November rolled around,
I was the last turkey left in the entire compound.

So now I'm a pet in the farmer's wife's lap;
I haven 't a worry, so I eat and I nap.

She held me today, while sewing and humming,
And smiled at me and said, "Christmas is coming..."

Keep my word positive.
Words become my behaviors.

Keep my behaviors positive.
Behaviors become my habits.

Keep my habits positive.
Habits become my values.

Keep my values positive.
Values become my destiny.

Gerrold's Laws of Infernal Dynamics:
(1) An object in motion will always be headed in the wrong
(2) An object at rest will always be in the wrong place.
(3) The energy required to change either one of these states
will always be more than you wish to expend, but never so
much as to make the task totally impossible.

Helen Lois Schultz, nee Jacobs

A very special person whose greatest joy was giving of herself.
She is fondly remembered as a most gracious, devoted and special
wife, mother, grandmother, friend and for correcting everyone's
grammar. Does she lay here or lie here?
