T'was The Night Of Thanksgiving (parody poem)


T'was the night of Thanksgiving, and I couldn't just fall asleep
I tried everything I knew, even trying to count some dumb sheep,
But nothing happened and I was getting more angry and mad at myself,
The leftovers were still on my mind and my stomach went just bleat!

I jumped over my bed as I raced to the door with all my power and might,
And right in the kitchen I landed, where some food was still on sight,
My heart beat it so fast like a train gone bad, when I saw all the turkey leftover galore,
White and dark meat were waiting there just for me, to my profounded delight!

There was cranberry sauce, apple pie and the most wonderfully sweet, pumpkin pie!
My heart aglowed and my mouth watered all over in front of all this sight,
For there I saw some chocolate pudding just sitting upon a tray,
So I gobbled and gobbled, till I thought I couldn't see another new day!

I felt myself swelling up all the sudden, right to the size of the house!
Then I heard this terrible noise, and I've just burst and rip off my blouse!
As I went off straight to the ceiling like a Speeding Gonzalez balloon!
I felt again so sick and so big as I went flying right past the face of the moon

But I still managed to YEEELLL to everyone in the whole town,
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! and pass me all your chocolate PUDDING! Please!

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

God leaves alone.
