'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the stores
People were fighting, and breaking down doors;
The sales were soon ending; a dollar to save
'Tis not the time to be nice or behave!
The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of iPods danced in their heads;
They'd settle for money, a laptop or two
Anything less would simply not do!
Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
The picketers were out bemoaning disaster
Saying happy holidays was simply provoking
Excluding "Christmas" is Satan invoking!
This year whether your tree Christmas or holiday be,
And gifts for the munchkins expensive or free,
Even if nothing in the world seems to be right,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
