Purple Thanks

Orange morning, purple rays.
It’s 6:30 a.m., the end of night.

I’m going to eat tom turkey
and give thanks for life.

Orange sun, purple maize.
American Indians and pilgrims

sitting down for lunch because
harvest time is here.

Orange dawn and purple haze.
Jimi Hendrix and the national anthem.

It’s been hard to be American
this year, so I’m thankful

it’s tomorrow and not just
the end of time drawing near.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Purple Thanks.”
