‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the
Not a creature was stirring not even a field mouse.
Lights were hung by the chimney with care,
Santa was careful when stapling so the wires weren’t bare.
The candles were out their wicks nice and cold,
For a fire while sleeping ruins more than a household.
New batteries in the detectors one for CO and one for smoke,
These will wake you to get out instead of one last choke.
Puppies and kittens all snug and inside,
A warm wet day, frozen nights turns pets to carbide.
The air was foggy the roads slick with ice,
An extra blanket in the car for break downs now that is just nice.
Snow bunnies working outside gathering wood,
All layered with clothing for warm bodies are good.
This year has come and gone the sun sets now at noon,
Have and wonderful holiday and like I always say, see you all soon.
