My Xmas Gift To Y'all...The Night Before Christmas...Revamped.My Xmas Gift To Y'all...6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
T'was the night before Christmas, when Dani remembered,
"Shit! Christmas is the twenty-fifth of December!
And because I've been piled with work
By teachers like Moloney (that endearing jerk)
I'm totally late in celebrating this year,
And, by great Ville Valo, it's almost here!"
So wracking her brain, most tired out and weak,
She thought, "I'll rewrite that Christmas poem...that'd be freaking sweet!"
So grabbing a notebook and trusty pen,
She was just about to start, but then,
Out of her window, she heard a loud SMASH!
She jumped a foot in the air, then summarily dashed
Over to the window, where unless her eyes and ears failed her,
Sat Saint Nick, injured, and cursing like a sailor.

...Unless, my dear girl, you'd be so kind
As to give me a hand

No longer serves to bring me glee.
Instead it just reminds me of,
The fragility of life and love.
For though both appear so vast;
Like the leaves, they're gone so fast.
And I do believe Fate has something in store
For me and my friends, and I don't like November anymore.
If I may venture to be so bold,
I'd ask November as to why its cold;
What is it I've done or didn't say
To send your autumnal wrath my way?
And what of my companions too?
What have they ever done to you?
This autumn at misfortune's door
Leaving me to say that I don't like November anymore.
