  • Twas the night before Christmas...

    Well it's couple of days off yet but here's my version of the poem.

    Twas the night before Christmas and all round the house
    The stench was horrendous and it wasn’t a mouse.
    The toilets were plugged, the drains wouldn’t drain,
    The sinks were stopped up, oh man what a pain.
    The children were sticky and the dogs were muddy too
    And all we have here is a shower full of poo
    Mamma and her mother were ticked off at me
    A house full of guests and no place to pee.
    Out on the lawn was a big stinky puddle
    It was black and nasty and had started to bubble.
    The poo and the paper in the new fallen snow
    Told me the septic tank had failed below.
    When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
    But Santa in a pumper truck to save my fat rear.
    He stirred and he pumped, and cleaned the drain with a snake.
    And when he was done, he said “For heaven sake.
    Don’t wait until you have a house full of poo,
    Next time call Clinkscales to take care of you.”
    I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
    “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”

    It isn't pasting from word with the spacing correctly. Oh well.

    Merry Chirstmas!

        Thanks Frank. We have a section in our local paper every other month called the community connection. We run an ad and a collumn in it each time. I wrote the poem for the column this time around. It was hard to do but fun!

        I hope you don't have any issues over the holidays either. My mother in laws place gives me fits every year at Thanksgiving. Hopefully I'm good for Christmas!

              Our Christmas card this year had a portable toilet, a tank truck in the background and elves carrying buckets back and forth while Santa supervised.

              On the inside it said "Our version of a bailout".

              We had to get it!
