Ode to Thanksgiving

Marty Lostheart

On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for life

and to be able to share it with my friends, kids and wife.

Everyone celebrates Thanksgiving in their own way

But let's take a look at the original Thanksgiving day.

It was many, many years ago when Pilgrims arrived

and the Native Americans taught them how to survive.

And, in return the Pilgrims gave them things brand new

like measles, cholera, chicken pox, and all types of flu.

They destroyed a great nation and took their land

and killed their families whenever they took a stand.

So, when you give thanks for things this time of year,

I am just grateful that some of my people are still here.
