'Twas the Friday before Christmas

December 21, 2018


Twas the Friday before Christmas and everything was hopping

As usual the husbands were just starting their shopping


The kids had buried the Elf on the Shelf

Which the dog then dug up to keep for himself


Grocery shoppers pushed loaded carts at full speed,

Not noticing they’d missed the one thing they’d need


The streets were a madhouse and horns honked nonstop

Weary teachers went home and collapsed with a plop


Cats climbed Christmas trees and caused mayhem

Then sat and dared anyone to punish them


Pretty packages all tied up with ribbon and bow

Were hidden where kids weren’t supposed to know


The children proved that was a waste of time

And hastily rewrapped them to hide the crime


And mom in her slippers and covered in flour

Looked at the clock and got a burst of willpower


If the cookies and candy could be done by midnight

She’s have a chance to get some sleep yet tonight
