’twas Christmas Eve, 2021
and all through the living room
empty eggnog cartons and Zingers wrappers
were scattered about
leaving no doubt
Santa would be out of luck!
Blu’s Mom and siblings had stopped by
bringing barking tales
and wagging tails
to brighten the winter day
without a single snowflake in the air
so it was doubtful Santa’s sleigh
could slide without a bumpy ride.
Yes, Christmas would definitely be
a setback without more snacks
and treats for the bunch of waggers
so I imagine Santa may stagger
after a few sips of Jack Daniels
on his jolly way to deliver
but only if you’ve been nice!
Merry (cough, cough) Christmas
Please remember to wear a mask 🙂
