Tâ€™was the night before Christmas, I just couldnâ€™t sleep.
With Keithâ€™s loud snoring, to my office I did creep.
I spied my computer, Iâ€™ll go boot-up that...
Iâ€™ll take me online for some Christmas Eve chat.
When out in the hall there arose such a racket,
Keith leapt from his bed, pulling on pant and jacket.
When, peeking through blinds, our eyes did behold,
but a weird kind of sleigh, and some guy who looked old.
It was Santa, in our yard and his face glow of rage
stuffing all reindeer into our GIANT CAT CAGE.....
So outside we ran, tried not to wake neighbor
When Santa exclaimed, â€œHey Keith, I need a favor!â€
â€œThe reindeer said neigh, they wonâ€™t pull this big sleigh...
...can I borrow your cats to save Christmas Day?â€
So we let Santa borrow our four cats to fly,
â€œJust be careful with Rocko, or heâ€™ll scratch out your eye!â€
Our pets were not shy and to Santa they came,
As he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
â€œNow, GoGo! now, Spot! No fighting in the sky
On, Peanut! on, Rocko! Itâ€™s time to go fly!
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall!
With felines in flight, they passed over the mall!
Then we heard him exclaim as he dwindled from sight,
â€œMerry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!â€
Merry Christmas Everybody!!
Kim, Keith & Eric Ward
