    '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, MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
    MAY YOUR POTATOES '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.

    HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!

    Jean
