Thanksgiving Dinner

Father glared menacingly,
carving knife in hand, while
Mother only cried into her napkin.
Auntie Matilda swooned,
face first into the gravy,
much to her son's chagrin.
Most of us just sat,
open mouthed,
the day Caroline admitted
that she was Republican.

  8. We know tensions would be high at a family holiday dinner. The punchline was brilliant.
