Thanksgiving Poem by Latino?

Specific Thanksgiving poem by a Latino author? I am trying to find a remembered poem for a professor about Thanksgiving that he remembers reading. Poem is in English, by a Latino poet, very funny, and about a young person explaining to his/her parents what Thanksgiving is/means. The prof thinks the poem was by a male author. (minor additional details below the fold)

After extensive searching, we have eliminated the following choices:
"Thanksgiving of No Mas" by Jose B. Gonzalez
"Thanksgiving" by Martin Espada
Professor says it was funnier than those two and that he remembers an exchange about the parents being surprised about cooking turkey and something about not understanding the word Thanksgiving as a holiday.
Any ideas? Anyone read something like this before? Please help a stumped librarian with addition idea if nothing else.
