“When’s Thanksgiving?”

(with apologies to julie fogliano)

when’s thanksgiving?

where’s thanksgiving?

when’s our out-of-office living?

is it in a couple hours?

is it far or is it near?

we’ll have turkey or tofurky

and a break from worky worky,

‘cause we’re thankful for our bookwork

but our sleepy sleep is dear.
