    Thanksgiving Poem

    '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!

    Happy, Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours!
