Designated Turkey

Movies and TV have taught us
Family holidays breed stress.
I’m inclined to say that’s not us:
“Relatively dramaless”
Would be a fair description of
The vibe that dominates when we
Converge upon this table. Love
Instead prevails, and harmony.
We’re also told that every clan
Has one whom eccentricity
Has taken to its bosom, and
If you can’t spot them, then you’ll see
Them in the mirror. If that’s true
The dearth of weirdos, freaks and cranks
Around this table means that you
All know it’s me. For that, my thanks
I’m glad to give. To be a part
Of such a loving group of folk
As this enhappifies my heart.
I’m truly blessed, and that’s no joke.
