“Turkey in the Straw” is a traditional American folk song and nursery rhyme that has been popular for many years. It is often associated with Thanksgiving, as the song mentions turkeys and farmers. Here is a short poem based on the song:
Oh, the farmer had a turkey,
And he lived way out on the farm.
He played his fiddle day and night,
And the turkey danced with all its might.
The turkey danced to “Turkey in the Straw,”
With its wings a-flapping and its feet a-pawing.
It danced and danced ’til it was tired,
Then it rested by the barn and admired
The beautiful fields of corn and wheat,
And the haystacks all piled up neat.
The turkey was so happy and content,
Living on the farm with all its friends.
