His Thanksgiving Favorites

His Thanksgiving favorites
are the gizzard,
liver and heart.
While he was composing,
his wife brought
him a part
of the gizzard, liver
and a whole heart.
She said there are two hearts —
two hearts in the big bird.
He knew of the Big Two
Hearted River in the
UP and he knew Big Bird
had a big heart,
but two boiled hearts
for the price of one?
This Thanksgiving is
destined to be the best one —
white meat, dark meat,
stuffing for the family
and a whole heart each
for the composer and his hon.
