T’was The Night Of Thanksgiving

T'was the night of Thanksgiving
but I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
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.
Till 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 and 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!

Dollar General Store on Pontoon Road.  Great way to enjoy this weather!
