    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 31

    Twas the night before Christmas
    And all thru the Home
    All the children were sleeping
    Except little Jerome
    Who pretended to sleep
    So, he would be able to see
    Santa arrive, but he fell asleep anyway
    So, it was not to be

    PREPARING THE BIRD

    The best way to prepare
    Your turkey this Christmas
    Is to keep it simple
    To minimize the fuss
    To my way of thinking
    The best method to apply
    Is just be straight
    And say ďTurkey, youíre going to dieĒ

    DEAR SANTA CLAUS

    Dear Santa Claus
    I have been good
    I thought Iíd mention that
    So itís understood

    I donít want
    Something practical
    Something useful
    Nor educational

    I donít what
    Something creative
    Something arty
    Or constructive

    I donít want
    Something sporty
    Something healthy
    Not outdoorsy

    What I want
    Is an X-Box or a PS3
    So I can escape
    My boring reality

    But I donít want
    You to bring me a Wii
    Itís just too healthy
    And drains my energy

    HE STOOD IN THE COLD CRISP NIGHT

    He stood in the cold crisp night
    Beneath the moon and the stars
    And looked at the majestic vista
    Imagining such a perfect night sky
    Two thousand years before

    WHILE THE FAMILY SLUMBER

    Myriad snowflakes fall
    Flakes, infinite in number
    Crystals of purest white
    Settle while we slumber

    Early the next morning
    In the gloomy light
    A pure white blanket
    Was greeted with delight

    The kids were excited but
    The presents took their focus
    For their parents it was magical
    To have a White Christmas

    THE ROOM WAS FULL OF CHRISTMAS

    The room was full of Christmas,
    Steeped in the essence of the season,
    Fragranced with Apple and Cinnamon,
    And decorated in festive livery
    Fresh cut garlands of evergreens,
    Tinsel, candles and coloured lights
    And on the peaceful Holy night
    With the velvet drapes pulled shut
    Against the bitter cold of winter
    A perfect couple held each other
    In the soft warm glow of firelight
    And the cozy room was full of love

    UNDER THE CHRISTMAS SKY

    Under the Christmas sky
    Their breath plumed
    In the frost filled air
    And the night sky
    Sparkled with stars
    Like diamonds sewn
    To the curtain of night
    And they both sighed
    Beneath its majesty
    And felt so blessed
    To be in love beneath
    Such a Christmas sky

    SHOOTING A PRIZE TURKEY

    Shooting a prize Turkey, with bullets
    Of sage and onion, was his crime
    He claimed that he was attempting
    To kill it and stuff it at the same time

    TO MAINTAIN A HIGH FIBRE DIET

    To maintain a high fibre diet
    During the Christmas festivities
    We are urged not to eat deserts
    And instead eat the Christmas trees

    TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS # 32

    Twas the night before Christmas
    And all thru the Manor
    Not a creature was stirring
    As theyíd been cooked for dinner

    I really loved a few of these, but especially "The Room Was Full Of Christmas" -- excellent!
