A Thanksgiving Dinner

Take a turkey, stuff it fat,
Some of this and some of that,
Get some turnips, peel them well,
Cook a big squash in its shell.
Now potatoes, big and white,
Mash till they are soft and light.
Cranberries, so tart and sweet,
With the turkey we must eat.
Pickles-yes-and then, oh my!
For a dessert a pumpkin pie,
Golden brown and spicy and sweet,
What a fine Thanksgiving treat!
