The fifteenth entry on The Tom Long and Short of It, featured on the Bluebell Website.

A Series of Election Haikus by Tom Long

All of the Pirates, the family and friends

Planksgiving’s the time to make amends

Holidays in BlueBell are what I’m all about

Everyone knows I take the turkey route

I’ve prepared for weeks, months, almost a year

It’s the day I can eat and eat with no fear

Those pants with the elastic waistband are key

Without them, all this food can’t fit in little ole me

But I don’t let my size stop me, I feast like a man

Well I mean, I try to eat as much as I can

But what a delight this feast will be

Pirates, Indians, Wanda and me.
