Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 413 (The Huge Dinner)

On Thanksgiving Day-
Much eating got underway.
.
We ate green bean casserole-
We ate a buttered roll.
.
We ate some cranberry sauce-
What to eat next, we were at
a loss.
.
We ate some gravy with the dressing-
We paused for a moment, we were
in the midst of resting.
.
We ate black olives, and of course turkey-
Pretty full, is what we were getting to be.
.
We ate corn on the cob, and a bit of
sweet potato-
How much more we could eat, we just
didn’t know.
.
Of course, we were thankful to be together
for this fine meal-
As every year, it was top bill.
.
After all of this eating, we left a bit, of space-
For some pie, whether it be pumpkin or apple,
at least one piece, we had to face.
.
On Thanksgiving Day-
Much eating got underway.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 675 (The Black Olive Tree)

The black olive tree was full-

It had its youth, it was beautiful.

.

The olives that it bore-

Were filled to the core.

.

And, then one day, some men came-

Making things, no longer the same.

.

They picked the olives til they were all gone-

Not one left, not one left on the lawn.

.

The tree was bare until the very next year-

But, one thing, out of all of this was clear.

.

There were millions of black olives for

Thanksgiving Day-

To highlight the turkey, that was cooked

for this special holiday.

.

The black olive tree was full-

It had its youth, it was beautiful.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 655 (Holidays Meshed Together)

The holidays are all meshed together-

Supposedly to make things easier, and so much the better.

.

The Halloween stuff is being rushed out-

To prepare for Christmas, no doubt.

.

Catch it all now, or it will be gone-

Storeworkers arranging stuff, from dusk to dawn.

.

A turkey here, a Santa Clause there-

A quick look will make the Halloween shelf bare.

.

We used to rush on Christmas Eve-

Now every holiday at once is stuffed up the sleeve.

.

To wait until the final holiday moment-

Means that more money might not be spent.

.

The holidays are all meshed together-

Supposedly to make things easier, and so much

the better.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose (Nap)

There was an old woman on tap-
Who much approved of a nap.

Taken on a daily basis-
Scheduled outright never to miss.

Usually at the same time-
In much rhythm and rhyme.

And in case of another date-
The put off nap would just have to wait.

But it was okay-
For the old woman enjoyed it anyway.

There was an old woman on tap-
Who much approved of a nap.

Three To Add (2016)

The better to eat, one
can agree-
Added gravy.

Gonna Try It-Not On A Diet (488)

It’s always nice-

To sit down, to a table, of roast, gravy, and rice.

Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 676 (Thanks And Dinner And Much More)

The family took their seat-

In order to enjoy a delicious eat.

.

The turkey came out nice and

brown-

Everyone at the table, admired it

from all around.

.

Grandmother had cooked it,

yes, she was the one-

Who carefully watched it,

until it was done.

.

The gravy she had prepared

was in the bowl-

Made from scratch, valuable

as gold.

.

To highlight the oyster dressing,

that was waiting to get wet-

Best dressing the family had

tasted yet.

.

The butter was on the plate, and

it was real-

The buns were warm and had

a good feel.

.

A few olives and a bit of cranberry

sauce, with more room to spare-

The sweet potatoes, and green bean

casserole were added with care.

.

Full to the max, with a piece of pie

left to go-

It’s typical to eat too much, as we

all know.

.

The family took their seat-

In order to enjoy a delicious eat.
