'Twas the Night Before

'Twas the night before Christmas when who should appear,
but an All-Star Santa....and two hyper reindeer.
The hour grew late and there was a change of plans
after greeting their dad with a "Happy Birthday Old Man!"
The children were finally sleeping sound in their beds,
after threats of duct tape rained down on their heads.

The teenagers snored and slept through the flash
as they dreamt of new Xbox games and cash.

The stockings were packed away from our reach
so bags were filled with pop-tarts and treats.
The packages were wrapped and stacked by the tree
that had been nearly stripped in a booby-making spree.

Then a tired old Santa and his green-eyed wife
headed off to sleep for a couple of hours that night.
But first she blogged for all their internet pals
"From us in the Ozarks, Merry Christmas Y'All!"
