TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
(humorous Christmas poem:)
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,
Everything was so noisy, it sounded more like a warehouse!
Everybody was up talking and walking around, arouse
Everything moved, even my computer mouse.
And there I was standing half-asleep, feeling really burned-out
So much going on right under my nose, I almost freaked out!
Everybody was partying,eating tortillas chips and dancing all day
Some of them were even doing flip-flops, and on their toes dancing ballet
And then I got so mad,so much clatter, I just wanted them all out my house,
Each and every one of them, including my very weird and very silly spouse.
The music was awful,no Christmas Carols, and that wasn't Strauss
And I asked myself again and again, why did I marry this louse!
All of sudden I heard the most terrible noise, it came from my dollhouse,
I peered inside and there sleeping I saw the biggest and ugliest mouse!
This time so scared I ran all the way to the green-house,
And all the way my mind was telling me 'Leave this mad-house'!
I guess I just lost it and started to scream and to shout!
My mind just went Blimp! I nearly had a total Blackout!!
Everybody then got so mad and all started to pout,
'Cause I just told them, else to be quiet or just to get OUT!!
At last everybody went in to sleep in their own room,
I was just falling happily asleep, when I heard the most terrible BOOOOM!!
The house has just collapsed, with all their SNOOORE!!!
