I know I'm a day early but don't know if I'll be able to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! ! !

'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 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 THE 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 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 A PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER
STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!!

MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING BE BLESSED!!!!!!!!!!!!
