Found this on the web-
Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving Day?
What’s its significance, all of us say.
We all find importance for which we are thankful,
And what we spend on this holiday is surely a bank full.
First the purchase of food for parties galore,
Then the fuel and decorating costs come to the fore.
We eat so much food that many get ill,
And drug makers get richer with each little pill.
It all becomes clear, if we closely examine
That we’re not giving thanks for avoiding a famine;
We’re creating the wealth and the plenty we see,
Including the sports ads we watch on TV.
