It's a Shadenfreude Thanksgiving!

I didn't have time to put this to music. Here it is..
It’s a Shadenfreude Thanksgiving!
When you gather round the table for Thanksgiving this year,
look around the room and see who’s there.
Uncle Tom, the drunk, not fooling anyone,
that coca-cola he’s drinking is full of rum.
Auntie Ethel’s gastric bypass went really swell
Fifty pounds lost and sixty pounds found, who’d a thought it wouldn’t end well?
Chorus
It’s schadenfreude Thanksgiving this year, my friends,
It’s a schadenfreude Thanksgiving, the dysfunction never ends.
Turkey, gravy, and dressing is served as well as pie
Keep stuffing it down and laugh while they cry.

It’s Thanksgiving in America and everyone thinks
As bad as it is, I'm not one of them.
“Honey Boo-Boo’s not my kid,” countless parents say,
As their own children scream when they don’t get their way.
Priests preach sermons on how it was much better
When fags knew their places, women kept silent and altar boys had swagger.


Chorus
It’s schadenfreude Thanksgiving this year, my friends.
It’s a schadenfreude Thanksgiving, the dysfunction never ends.
Turkey, gravy, and dressing is served as well as pie
Keep stuffing it down and laugh as you cry.

Thanksgiving day comes but once in a year.
Thanks to Facebook your relatives will always be near.
Posting Take America back!  Jesus is my hero!
They’ve never read the Bible, and don’t know the tome is schizo.
Yes, consumerism and gluttony rule this fowl day,
But be calm, all will be well, ‘cause Christmas is on its way!


Chorus
It’s schadenfreude Thanksgiving this year, my friends,
It’s a schadenfreude Thanksgiving, the dysfunction never ends.
Turkey, gravy, and dressing is served as well as pie
Keep stuffing it down and laugh while they cry.

  1. Bah, humbug ! Xmas, another excuse to go into debt that you never really repay. The stores luv it. And the circle of poverty goes round and round until death reaches out and chokes us.

  3. I don't recall seeing you at my Thanksgiving dinner, but clearly you were there, you summed it up perfectly. If I were a theist I would believe you were there and that you were specifically talking to me with your song, even though there is strong evidence against such beliefs...

    1. Next year I'm doing a Thanksgiving prayer based on Guns, Germs and Steel.
