i’m not thankful for / i am thankful for

i’m not thankful for split families
both the predators and the prey
wagers of wars and recipients
closest to my home
conscious objectors still in Canada
afraid their US of A had lied again

i’m not thankful for
the loss of comprehension
Every Meal Is A Feast

i am thankful for
friends and family
here and gone
miles or clouds away
still touch my heart
with gifts
that keep on giving.
