When did Thanksgiving turn into Thanksgetting?
A day of giving thanks that is forgotten and consumed by the consumer
Family laughs are left behind as red markers circle want they want in ads
When I make Pop-over biscuits everyone else is popping off to the stores
Skip over a day of thanks to the day of need more, more, more
Saving a dollar becomes more important than saving room for a piece of pumpkin pie
People think buying gifts is more important than saying ‘Thank you’ to who the gifts are for
I like getting a good deal just as much as anyone else, but I’d rather be getting a precious memory instead
I understand Thanksgiving is hard because some families are difficult to get along with, but you are supposed to be ‘giving’ them another chance
I wonder if shopping is just an overused excuse to not have a family get-to-together?
Stuffing turns into stuffing the shopping cart
Cranberries morph in to ‘cram’ all the goodies
Yams are ‘Yeah, I’m in line’
I want a thankful Thanksgiving and not a Thanksgetting
