‘Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

‘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, stuffing with gravy, green beans and tomatoes.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky with a mouth full of pudding and a handful of pie.

But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees…

Happy eating to all–pass the alka seltzer please!
