The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven The turkey shot
out of the oven And rocketed into the air, It
knocked every plate off the table And partly
demolished a chair. It ricocheted into a
corner And burst with a deafening boom, Then
splattered all over the kitchen, Completely
obscuring the room. It stuck to the walls and
the windows, It totally coated the floor, There
was turkey attached to the ceiling, Where thered
never been turkey before. It blanketed every
appliance, It smeared every saucer and
bowl, There wasnt a way I could stop it, That
turkey was out of control. I scraped and I
scrubbed with displeasure, And thought with
chagrin as I mopped, That Id never again stuff a
turkey With popcorn that hadnt been popped.
