Thanksgiving Dinner

Posted on the 05 October 2012 by Dpitter @dpitterblog

It’s Thanksgiving weekend and all through the house Decorations are everywhere thanks to my spouse Turkeys and pumpkins, some Halloween stuff too A cornucopia of clutter forever within my view
Family is forever, and that’s what I fear To get through this weekend, is gonna take a lotta beer Children running and screaming, making all kinds of noise Parents throwing up their arms, figuring boys will be boys
Four or five hours, turkey takes a long time to cook Maybe those frozen dinners deserve a second look I’m hungry God dammit, when can we eat I want to dig in, and fill my belly with meat
Mashed potatoes, gravy, and don’t forget the stuffing Am I really full already, or is my stomach just bluffing? I eat more regardless, until I can’t move Music is playing, but I’m in no shape to groove
Is it hot in here or is it just me, I’m starting to sweat My poor stomach aches, full of turkey and regret The table is cleared, turkey carcass waves goodbye My mother-in-law yells from the kitchen, who wants some pie!
Of course I say “I do”, fighting that feeling of doom  Thinking a burp and a fart would sure help make some room But we’re all sitting at the table, alas I cannot do that Just have to sit here and moan, “Oh man, I feel fat!”
Still I am thankful, and for that I can boast It’s people, not things, that matter the most I’m a pretty lucky guy, despite all my rants Happy Thanksgiving to all, put on your stretchy pants!
