The company says they’ll do me a favor
And leave the leftovers for me to savor.
Feeling stuffed, I have no desire
However, they’re easy to warm up, just add some fire.
Six hours later, I’m hungry again.
I’ll just snack a bit, it is no sin.
And there’s all that food that will go to waste,
And it is quite savory to my taste.
Look, Vicky left a pecan candy roll,
On my diet they will take a toll.
But it must be gone when she comes back;
I wouldn’t want our relationship to go slack.
Who left this crispy apple pie,
Now I’ll eat it! I’m not shy.
There’s the cookies, I’ll take a bunch
I’ll eat them for dessert after my lunch.
Though fifteen Rubbermaid storage bowls I go.
Must go fast, for if I’m too slow.
I might let that good food spoil
Remember for this layout, starving men would toil.
Must not be wasteful, for in many a city,
Children are starving. It would be a pity
To not be thankful and appreciate
These luscious leftovers on my plate!
Edit, cut and paste from after Thanksgiving in 2016. Remember I am the “new” me this year. So far the cinnamon rolls are under the cake plate lid. 😀
