The gremlins were around late last night
This morning at four they decided to fight
I peeked out of the covers and turned on the light
The time on my phone gave me a fright
Only four? It’s the middle of the night!
These gremlins stay up pretty late
I do some puzzles and patiently wait
No use trying to sleep with all the noise
Wonder if they have teenage boys?
Oh well, I got up did some Thanksgiving prep
Returned to my bed, thank heavens I slept.
It’s now almost one in the afternoon
Turkey smells drift making me swoon
The skin is browning, stuffing gets baked
Maybe dessert will involve a cake.
Another day ushering in the season
For happiness, maybe some stress within reason
My wish for you all is just to enjoy
After all, that’s the original ploy.
