Read introduction

This poem describes the materialism and greed within america. On Thanksgiving we all claim to be thankful for all we have but the day after, we savage each other for materialistic items at a low price.

Please allow us to give thanks on Thursday

Grateful for all we have

Reality struck at twelve
Devastating blow

Leaving the people concussed
With a severe case of amnesia

Society asked
“What are you thankful for?”

The people responded with chants of silence

In twenty-four hours
Our focus shifted

For the low price
We display characteristics of a low life

Yesterday we give thanks for all we have
Today we fight for all we need
