Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!

Wed Dec 24, 2014, 6:16 PM by Heidi:iconheidi:
‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt,
Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.
The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care
Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there.

Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones
While visions of inspiration across all time zones
Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be,
At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree!

When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,
“I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too.
I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”

I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!

“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!
Tap-and-hold to fave, share, and ‘More Like This’ – yay!
Read notifications on the go, or scan new search hits!
Check in on your friends, or even Submit!”

The deviant sprang to the App Store (or perhaps Google Play)
To download inspiration to read from his sleigh.
And I heard him exclaim, with all of his heart:
“Happy holidays to all, and to all a good art!”
