I’m So Blessed

Print Share
    I like to eat the pumpkin pie
    (Dessert is always best).
    I like to eat the turkey, too—
    Especially when it’s dressed.
    I like to crunch on crisp, green pickles,
    And celery stuffed with cheese.
    I try to use good manners, saying,
    “Thank-you” and “Yes, please.”
    But when the olives come around,
    I know it looks so grand
    To wear one on each finger
    And eat them off my hand!
    I build a small volcano
    Of potatoes that erupts
    As I pour hot “lava” gravy
    Down the sides and on the top.
    After eating all this scrumptious food—
    And feeling far too full—
    My grandma always asks me,
    “Dear, want another roll?”
    When we’re clearing off the table,
    Washing dishes that are messed,
    It’s important that I stop to say,
    “Thank you—I’m so blessed!”
