Turkey Paradigm Poem

Old Paradigm may be a Turkey

On this day of family scenes and dawn to dusk football,
it may be in our genes to ever have a brawl.

But on this day of gratitude for everything so swell,
let's exchange the platitude for catchy doggerel.

On this day of thanks sublime and many a high-heaped serving,
let's have another paradigm because we're so deserving.

The old one's dead and stiff, way past its prime and time.
We'll be much better off IF, we get another paradigm.

So here's a Scottish saying, expressing what Kuhn meant,
in the form of praying; may it not be OUR lament.

"May I always be quite right, I pray, O Lord so kind;
for Thou knowest, without a fight, I will never change MY mind."

Thus have a happy day, one with all the trimmings,
a pair of stars to guide your way, without a pair of dimmings.

Poem by Michael Armstrong
