Thanksgiving Dinner Lament

by Verna Cole Mitchell

Make me Laugh Contest Winner 
My plate was overflowing,
And I swallowed every bite.
But now I wish I hadn't.
My stomach's just not right.

It could have been the turkey.
It might have been the pie.
I'm not quite certain what it was.
I think I'm gonna die.

I haven't eaten that much since
I can't remember when.
I'll be a prudent eater till
Thanksgiving comes again.
