funny post-Thanksgiving poem

Wishing You a Very Happy Thanksgiving (author unknown)

'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 Thanksgiving!"
