    A longer weekend, hopes to leave, but must complete thine annual jaunt.
    Struggling hard to find some words while dreaming ‘bout the tasty birds,
    A meal awaits, with family nerds who, all about thine job, will taunt.
    Thou digress - the work awaits. “’Tis hunger tricks,” my mind doth haunt.
    Turkey sandwich, thou doth want.
