know I shouldn't be selfish, I guess,
however, there’s something I have to confess:
Helping old ladies across the street,
giving a child a candy to eat,
Extending a hand when the table needs setting —
are things that I do for Thanksgetting.
It’s perfectly clear, as we all can perceive,
it’s better to give, instead of receive.
Good deeds that we do are things we can savor —
that’s why I’ll allow you to do me a favor.
I’ll let you do something for me, and I’m betting
you, also, take joy in Thanksgetting.
