Saturday, December 21, 2013
Twas the day before X Mass,
There appeared such a ruckus.
Boxes of clutter, spewed decorations
Twas a mine field of clutter.
A once beautiful living room,
Now in despair,
Needed the magic of Saint Nick,
To mend it, and repair.

Something is up,
Said ,"our cats to the dogs."
Twas the day before X Mass,
Our parents gave to us,
So many presents,
Why all the fuss?

Twas the day before X Mass,
Our parents gave to us,
The largest scratch post,
Dangly lights to swat at,
A tree to climb for heights.
Toys to knock around the floor.
nicely wrapped snacks to eat,
Icicles to tickle my nose,
Pretty lights that flicker,
A couple swats,
I make them fall,
Watch the bulb as it hits the wall.

Oh look, our owners so sweet,
Left the dog, a place to pee.

Twinkle, twinkle little lights,
I really don't understand,
Why you're so bright.
I must chase that flicker you have,
Cause investigation is my right.
Killing bugs in the nite.
And as I get closer,
I begin to howler,
"What the hells wrong with you!
My tails on fire.
So, to all a good nite."
Softly we leave to find our beds,
From a nite of exhaustion,
That really messed with our heads!

Finally that great day has arrived.
But mommy says we must dress for the occasion.
So, Jimmy our dog wore a swatch of sheep skin as a sweater,
With Horns as the hat.
And little Poppie had on a dolls green sweater with a tree on it,
a candy cane scarf wrapped around her neck,
And just the littlest Santa cap ever made.
With holes to let her ears peak thru.
While the rest of the gang just felt ridiculous too.
And all the pussy cats tried hiding to keep from getting dressed.

Their masters just sat there with smiles on their faces.
Now Jimmy, now Pouskie, then Smoukie, & Poopers,
Come here!
Cause mommy & daddy want to give you a little cheer.
Santa brought you something from Kohl's,
For Jimmy who chases the flies with our cats.
We gave you a mechanical mouse.
For Pouskie, a deer that walks,
Whose nose is flashing.
For Poopers & Mouskie,
I bought a bird, a swimming rubber ducky.
So watch as I fill the tub.

Oh what a day of joy,
Our pets were having.
Stepping thru land mines of broken bulbs.
Dangling treats at their heads.
Getting sick from the candy canes,
Ate with wrappers,

Stumbling around the house from the clothes,
They were wearing.
It only took a minute for Jimmy to catch the mechanical mouse.
So, he walked away bewildered.
And Pouskie hid so the monster wouldn't hurt her,
Walking closer with that x ray signally nose.
And little Poopers & her mommy, Mouskie didn't like baths,
So they never went to see what all the excitement was all about.

"What a wonderful X Mas once again,"
The pets owners thought.
"Our pets loved their gifts."
As their owners sat on the couch,
Sipping their hot chocolate,
And drinking hot apple cider.
They Snuggled with their slippers on.
Waiting for the chestnuts that were roasting ,
In the oven, that tasted like potatoes.
Got up to eat more dessert.
Eating marshmallows off hangers,
That were toasted.
Acting like kids at a camp fire.

As The animals,
lay naked in their beds quietly.
Exhausted from a day,
That really stressed with their heads.

Then I arose from all the clammer.
I went to the window,
To see what's the matter.
The stars sparkled & twinkled.
I heard a whisper,
That's was carried thru the nite.
"Come Dancer, came Prancer,
And to all a good nite."
With all my love,
For this joyous season,
Merry Christmas
Sammy, Sashe, Katie and Spunkie
