Tattling Ted the Turkey

decorative

I took up the challenge this year to make a blog post every day. At first, it sounded like an easy task, but I soon discovered it more challenging than I ever imagined. For part of the year-long adventure, I explored different styles of poetry. I decided to revisit many of these styles in November. NaNoWriMo takes up most of my time during this month. Plus, the weather turns cold, making it hard to go on an adventure unless Rooster and I decide to visit our baby chick in New York City. Sometimes I get a hunger for the road. Christmas is right around the corner. I wrote this limerick because this is the time of year when I like to snuggle in bed where it is warm. I called it Tattling Ted the Turkey.

Tattling Ted the Turkey

The turkey’s name was Tattling Ted,

He didn’t understand he’d end up dead

It came is the ultimate chilling shock

When his neck was on the chopping block.

He wanted to die of old age instead.
