Twas 27 nights before Christmas
And all through the house
Lay decoration after decoration
And a very tired spouse.
Because instead of relaxing
Or shopping and eating pie
Mommy Ritch commanded Christmas stuff
Be brought down from way up high.
So all morning and afternoon
Was spent hauling and unwrapping
Lighting the three Christmas trees
And yes, maybe some snacking.
But in the end, you can see
Twas all for good and cheer
And we won’t think about the work
To pack it all up for next year.
And now I say…”Good night!”
