CRANKY’s POEM OF CHRISTMAS EVES PAST

CRANKY’s POEM OF CHRISTMAS EVES PAST



‘Twas the night before Christmas

In my little house

I tried to play Santa

Though I was half soused


The children were sleeping

Content they’d not sinned

They had not a clue

Dad was three sheets to the wind


Trying to construct

A bike or a plane

While being half toasted

Was simply insane


There was no excuse

For my sorry condition

But getting bombed on this night

Was my Christmas tradition


On Lancer’s on Gray Goose

On Dewars I’m sippin

Screw Rudolph and Donnar

I’m getting Blitzen


The presents were laid out

The stockings filled in a hurry

I staggered upstairs

With sight that was blurry


The children awoke

And jumped on our bed

In their excitement

They didn’t care of my head


Down the stairs 

To the tree they did run

The presents; the stockings

Were nothing but fun


The children were happy

They were all in high clover

Merry Christmas to all

And to Dad a hangover
The new, improved, sober Cranky say's drink responsibly, and if you must drink...don't wrap presents!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!! - I'll be back next year.
