Pop Culture Challenge: Gee, Thanks!


Since we are just a few days away from Thanksgiving, this week’s challenge for the Pop Culture League is titled "Gee, Thanks!: It’s the season to be thankful" and has us looking inward and reflecting on what we have to be thankful for.

In honor of this challenge and blessing of a holiday...I have written a crappy poem about toys, family and the spirit of the holiday. Enjoy!

Golden Girls, Smurfs and bad guys named Megatron;
the family of mutated Turtles like Don.
I'm thankful for cartoons, the 80s, and Kids from the Pail
who made childhood experiences creepy like a Crypt with a Tale.
I'm thankful for Rattlor, Nintendo and Ironhide 
for Busters of Ghosts who read Tobin's Spirit Guide
It's almost the end but we can not ever forget
Saturday mornings in front of our parent's TV set
For all of the memories, the fun and the friends
for the stuffed Ewok critter we cuddled to no end
Finally for family, for health and my kids
Happy Thanksgiving to all. I hope you win your eBay Hatchimal bids!

Happy Thanksgiving!
