"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,
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 trees....
Happy eating to all, pass the cranberries, please.
May your stuffing be tasty, your turkey be plump.
Your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious, your pies take the prize.
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone !!!
LOL! That's too cute!
And I do hope it stays off my thighs! hehe.
Oh I loved that!!! Thanks so much!!!!
And all the best to you and to all.
Glad you enjoyed that. A friend sent it to me a few years ago and it's become the email joke around here.
Man oh man, I feel just like the third paragraph of that poem! Oh well, it's all good. Happy Thanksgiving all!!
OMG, that is too funny. I'm not going any where near the scales for a couple of weeks. Too depressing. And that doesn't make for a jolly ole elf. LOL.
You made my day!
Now that I've picked myself up off the floor,
THANK YOU for sharing such a wonderful thought!!!!
I know, isn't that hysterical?? I laughed so hard when I first read it I got a really bad tummy ache -- having just eaten a HUGE thanksgiving meal!! (They almost had to rush me to the hospital!)
That's a great poem. Thank You!! And happy holidays to everyone! Eat, Drink, Be Merry, repeat....
