God gave us stuff
God stuffed us
Give thanks

Stuff turkeys to

Thanks God
Thanks turkeys
Give turkey

God give us enough
Stuff us
God stuffs us turkeys

Let there be
God said
Thanks God
and there was
stuff was
God there
God was
God suffered
for us
Thanks God
for giving us enough
forgiving us
for stuff
