'Twas the Night of Thanksgiving

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't
 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
 Happy eating to all - Pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty, May your turkey be
May your potatoes 'n gravy Have nary a lump,
May your yams be delicious May your pies take the
May your Thanksgiving dinner Stay off of your
