After Thanksgiving Poem

Jacob has a very wonderful talent for writing poems at the drop of a hat!! It takes me three days to get one line written. I thought this was so appropriate I asked him if I could post it on my blog!!

Twas the Day After Thanksgiving
And all through the place
Everyone was groaning
It was quite a disgrace

For gluttons they were
And they now must pay the price
For eating to much on Thanksgiving
Their dignity they did sacrifice

They ate like men on death row
Like those who were doomed
I even saw this one guy
Eating with two spoons

It was a frantic eating frenzy
As I tried to calm everyone down
They all screamed, jumped and shouted
Well, until the chandelier fell down.

No remorse they felt
As they filled their empty plates
Webster said,” I’m skinny!
Could use to gain some weight.”

I shook my head in utter dismay
While walking out of the room
These people who say they are celebrating
Are really sealing their Edible Doom.
