C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Turkey
 
        How bless’d, how envied were our life,
Could we but ’scape the poulterer’s knife!
But man, curs’d man, on turkeys preys,
And Christmas shortens all our days:
Sometimes with oysters we combine,
Sometimes assist the savory chine.
From the low peasant to the lord,
The turkey smokes on every board.
Gay.
