‘Twas the Night Before Christmas-Foust Style

‘Twas the night before Christmas
And I’m drinking wine
The cats are fast snoozing
And I’m feeling fine

The stockings were hung
By the lava light with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas
Might actually come this year

Ralphie got his BB gun
And the Grinch grew a heart
Fozzi’s mom hosted Muppets
And Garfield found lost art

Made mini-pumpkin pies
For Christmas day brunch
Hope they taste good
To my friends, the whole bunch

Feeling awful thankful
Politics aside
Been a good year
Though a lot of big folks died

Charlie Brown got Christmas spirit
Raisins sang about Rudolph’s ride
Clark finally got his bonus
And Frosty came alive

Getting kind of sleepy
Is that sleigh bells I hear?
Nope, NORAD says St. Pete’s past
Missed him again this year

Not sure what to think
About the upcoming year
Trump as our President
Doesn’t fill me with cheer

But I’ll march and I’ll call
I’ll write and I’ll fight
I’ll put in the work
To protect human rights

I wish you the best
As we end this long year
Happy holidays to all
And Happy New Year!
