Happy Thanksgiving

Twas the night after Thanksgiving 
 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 temptations 
 with all of my might. 
Tossing and turning 
 with anticipation, 
The thought of a snack 
 was 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 'taters 'n gravy 
 have narry a lump. 
May your yams be delicious, 
 may your pies take the prize, 
May your holiday dinner 
 stay off of your thighs. 
 
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they 
shall never cease to be amused.
