Twas The Night Of 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,
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 taters '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!!!
