‘Twas two weeks before Christmas and things were stirring through the house
including the cats who had just caught a mouse.
Nothing was hung by the chimney with care.
The stockings were still in the attic, along with the cheap angel hair.
No cookies were set out for Santa;
instead he was getting an old can of Fanta.
The kid was on her I-phone in fun;
the mom was trying to get her blog done.
The tree was outside in a bucket of water;
neither had the energy to bother.
The wreaths were sitting alone in the car,
with hopes that one would come from afar.
As Christmas draws near, it’s a definite sight
to take a peek into this house tonight.
Come back soon for another Christmas update!
