‘Twas the night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn’t sleep
I tried counting backwards. l tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned – the dark meat and white.
But l 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!
