    '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 THE DOOR
    AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
    I GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
    PICKLES AND CARROTS AND 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"!!
