'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,
'Till 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!
- Not sure where I got this or the author, but I love it!
Happy Thanksgiving holiday to everyone!
