'Twas the night before Christmas

Postby Anita Rae » Thu Dec 01, 2005 8:01 pm

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
Dedicated to all the tolerant husbands.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
all sorts of creatures were stirring, but not one little mouse.
The stockings were hung on the cages with care,
in hopes that St. Nicolas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
while flyers and gliders danced in their heads.
Pop was in bed just starting to snore,
and me at my laptop checking out the boards.

When down in the playroom there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
I flung open the door and ran like a flash,
down the hall to the playroom, I made a mad dash.

There in the playroom, the light was so dim,
I knew in a moment, it must be him.
Not Santa but Hubby to my surprise,
his face was contorted, and there was blood in his eyes.

He kicked and he screamed in a fit of pure rage,
and he had his shotgun aimed at my cage.
Don’t do it I cried, they are not to blame.
and I went to the cage and called each one by name.

Oh Echo, Titan, Peanut, and Stormy
Oh Krab, Lillie, Poncho, and Munchie
Oh Boo, Bullet and Bucky
Hide in your pouches,
Dash away! Dash away!
Dash away all!

I turned to my hubby and tried to explain,
those squeaky wheels are what you should blame.
Just one more night, it’s Christmas Eve,
the furbutts have StealthWheels under the tree.

His eyes how they twinkled, his form filled with glee,
do you mean there are StealthWheels under that tree?
Well break them out woman, there’s no need to wait.
You know it’s not your furbutts that I hate.

We ripped and we tore
the wrapping to shreds,
We handed out StealthWheels
and Hubby went to bed.

There he went in his boxers and boots.
I tried not to laugh but he looked quite a hoot.
As he went down the hall, I heard him exclaim,
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!!
