Thanksgiving dinner and apple pies,
Family warmth on that special day,
Sweet potatoes will surely go to my thighs,
I am so lucky to have my family stay.
My heart is warm and happy this day,
family and friends and laughter abounds,
Except for the crazy, drunken Aunt May
I think thekids, and myself will sleep so sound.
Winter is sneaking up so soon,
With cold and snow and ice coming into play,
All the eating will turn me into a baboon,
Kids will love, when from school, there’s a snow day.
My heart will be cold and dense and small,
Waiting for that winter’s thaw,
I will just have to spend lots of money at the mall,
Until the weather is no longer raw.
