The Turkey as Our National Bird
Long ago, or so I've heard,
The famed Ben Franklin quite bestirred
The people re: a national bird.
And while the turkey seems absurd,
A turkey, if he were captured,
And thinking of his poor gizzard
Would hope a hunter'd be deterred
And keep him as a bird pampered.
The turkey said, and I concurred,
and its turkey herd.
