"A visit from St. Blog"

Twas three days before Christmas and gray was the sky
my thoughts were of presents that I've yet to buy
The stockings were hung on the mantle piece bare
in hopes that just someone might put something there

The pine trees were swaying and dripping with rain
the worst fear of mine was a late hurricane

With the wife in her bathrobe my head in a fog
it would be no weekend if I didn't blog
When out on the porch the screen door was banging
off in the distance were fire bells clanging
Tornado! she said, lets get under the table!
my only concern was the loss of our cable!
If I had known this I'd not moved to the coast
Please let me finish this half written post!
So as you can see daily life's become fast
gone are the days when this used to be last.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to my fellow bloggers!


and thank you to the anonymous poet who wrote "A visit from St. Nicholas"
