"Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned - The dark meat and white But I fought the temptation With all of my might.

Tossing and turning With anticipation The thought of a snack Became infatuation.

So, I raced to the kitchen, Flung open the door And gazed at the fridge, Full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey And buttered potatoes, Pickles and carrots, Beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling So plump and so round, 'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, Floating into the sky With a mouthful of pudding And a handful of pie.

But, I managed to yell As I soared past the trees.... Happy eating to all - Pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty, May your turkey be plump. May your potatoes 'n gravy Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious May your pies take the prize, May your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off of your thighs.

May your Thanksgiving be blessed!
