Of Turkey Day

November 25, 2009

The tryptophan in turkey
“Experts” now say
Is not in large enough quantities
To cause drowsiness
Upon consumption.
Well dang it!
Why do you have to ruin my excuse?
I was perfectly content to say
I’m too tired
To clean up after the meal.
Opting instead to pat my bloated belly
And nap on the couch
During the football game.
(I say nap because the Lions are playing.)
Leave me and my placebo effect alone,
Will you?
