Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!

Sun Dec 24, 2017, 11:14 AM by Heidi:iconheidi:
‘Twas the night before Christmas,
When all through D.A.,
Dear Santy was browsing
(‘stead of filling his sleigh).

The deviants were nestled
All snug in their arts,
While visions of masterpieces
Danced in their hearts.

Back at his workshop,
There arose such a clatter,
Santa sprang from his desk chair
To see what was the matter.

An elf skidded into
Santa’s computer pavilion,
Shouting, “We’ve forgotten some gifts!
About 44 million!”

The jolly elf’s eyes
Grew three sizes that day.
“How could this happen?
There’s no room on the sleigh!”

“There’s that list you checked twice,
And then there’s the new one,
For people you wanted
To gift devious fun.”

Santa glanced at his smart watch --
Quarter till midnight it struck --
And said, “We still have some time,
With some magic and luck!”

Away they both flew
To the cavernous stables
Where nine reindeer live --
Or so say the fables.

The tales also tell
Of an ancient appliance
That spews Holiday Cheer.
(Santa’s way into science.)

Tucked into a corner,
By the back of the wall,
Santa threw down a lever,
Changing Christmas for all.

The Cheer never faltered,
But Santa’s hacked creation,
Now spewed forth something else --
Artistic Inspiration.

44 Million Deviants
The whole world around
Created and uploaded,
Imaginations Unbound!

For Santa’s great wish
Was for new items to enter
Your Watch and your Feedback
Of your Notifications Center!

If you’ve X’d all your Notifs
On this Christmas Eve so starry
Then this Journal shall be Santy’s gift to you.
(Sorry!)

With Inspiration delivered,
Santa’s night could begin,
Bringing arts, high-tech gadgets,
Empty notebooks for the win!

He sprang to his sleigh,
With his 9 reindeer mounts,
And away they all flew
(Like your future fave counts!)

The elf heard him exclaim --
Inspiration filling his heart --
“Happy Christmas to all,
And to all a good art!”
