Thank you, Lord, for this Thanksgiving Day,
Let everyone have a good meal, I say.
Let people take some time to pray,
Let no one be alone today.
Sometimes, dear Lord, I forget to say grace,
Just hurry up and feed my face,
With work and school and friends on MySpace,
I’m just a rat and it’s a race.
I’m thankful, Lord, and I think you know it,
I’m just so busy I don’t always show it.
So many things get in my way,
What is it, Lord, what did you say?
You were too busy to hear me or to look,
There’s no room for me on your Facebook?
Not even a glance, a glimpse, or glitter,
No time for a tweet to update my Twitter?
Hold on, Lord, my cell phone’s ringing,
You couldn’t hear me over the Angels singing?
I said, “it’s my phone” I’m getting a text!
Whatta ya mean, you’ll get to me next?
What do you mean TTYL? Talk to me NOW before this meal!
BRB and LOL! Are you for real? What the hell?
Oops, forgive me, Lord, red is my face,
Whatta ya mean ‘I might like that place’?
I get it, Lord, I’m on my knees,
Forgive me, Lord, I beg you, please!
Not just on Thanksgiving, but on everyday,
I’ll take the time to kneel and pray.
I’ll spread your word and show the way,
To all my friends and everyday!
Most important, Lord, I’m still your child,
I don’t need Skype, to know you just smiled.
