The Locals

by John
(London, England)

Pests at the table

We were the uninvited guests
they made the best of it
gave us hospitality
asked no questions for we
did not understand the ways
of them

Why turkey?

well it was in good supply
you don't look a gift horse
in the mouth
even if it's a bird.

In the end we
thought them friendly
that was the beginning of the end
of the ways
we did not understand.
