'Twas the night of Thanksgiving....

  1. '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 though 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,
    Floated into the sky
    With a mouthful and 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!"
