Another Brain Storm (Thanksgiving)

Thanksgiving is a holiday
We celebrate each year
And it also reminds us
Christmas is drawing near

After Christmas come New Year's
And [Twenty-Thirteen] starts
At twelve o'clock on New Year's Eve
Old [Twenty-Twelve] departs

We'are thankful that we have a home
With food and clothes to wear
Also that we live in the West
With hardly a worry or care

This is a real good place to live
It's not too cold and not too hot
We can go outside at night
Without a fear of being mugged or shot

So as this year draws to an end
With things real good out there
We wish you all a Merry Christmas
And an extra good New Year

D.B. Cox
