taking inventory while scanning
the perimeter for suspicious characters
obeisance to vague authority
that conveniently wants what I want
gratifying gross desires
and slumbering in self-congratulation
beneath the bemused eye of God
watching the whimsy of creation
One thought on "Thanksgiving Observed"

The “self-congratulation” rhyme with “creation” clinches the poem for me.
