Follette, Margaret “Maggi”

Margaret Follette “Maggi”

From the 1946 Mar-Ken Intermediate and Junior High Yearbook:
Margaret Follette contributed this poem to the Yearbook:


Oh! What would the turkey gobbler do,
If he got the hiccoughs before he was through
With his gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble?

I’m sure that he could never see through the joke
If he started to gobble and stopped to choke,
With his gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble.

The puffed out fool would grow red in the face,
And the hens would laugh at their lord’s disgrace,
At his gobble, his gobble, his gobble, gobble, gobble.

– Margaret Follette
