Riffing thoughts about what single people do for Thanksgiving as a reminder to all that real joy comes in giving.
Single is as single does
And this year is as last year was.
Some travel far just to be
Annoyed with their own family.
Some enjoy the peace and quiet
And think your worry is a riot!
Some drink and eat and laugh with friends.
Some serve dreaming that gravy mends
The hearts of the starved and lonely
Who are thankful just to be
Alive to eat some turkey and pie
And relocate the thanks on which joy relies.
