Twas the night before christmas and all through the dorm
Every trainee was stirring and was as loud as a storm
The night displays were hung on the wall lockers with care
In hopes that SSgt. Jenkins would not be there
Some of the gimpies were already in bed
Complaining about noise because of a pain in their head
And I in my hoodie and Newbie with her hat
Had just sat down for a 2 hour chat
When out in the stairwell there arose such a clatter
I jumped from my chair to see what was the matter
Up from my chair, the place where I sat
And with a dreadful hand I lifted the flap
The light from the stairwell was all dim and eerie
It filtered in from the window to show something scary
To what my wide eyes should appear
But a tall, blonde instructor just standing there
With a wide toothy grin so big and fun
I knew in a second it was Airman Richardson
And as his grin grew, he knew I could tell,
He began to speak, though it was more like yell.
"HEY!! LISTEN UP!! A1, A2, AND B2!
I SAID IT TO THE MALES, I'LL SAY IT TO YOU TOO!
ST. NICK IS COMING, IT'LL BE A SURPRISE!
BUT JUST A HEADS UP, SHE'LL BE IN DISGUISE!"
And when I thought he would have more to say
He just turned around and walked away.
It was then that I frowned and made everyone go to bed
So I could sit and think about what he had said
The dorm was soon quiet, each person asleep
Not even the snore-ers were making a peep
Another hour went by and just like a hound
I perked up to attention when I heard another sound
A jingle was heard and the door opened wide
Showing five more instructors and causing the newbie to hide
SSgt. Jeeter and Edwards were two that I knew
Female Harris, Talashie, and Fisher-Plotez were all there too
Without a word they stepped inside
Causing me to wonder as they each walked by.
'WTP?!' I thought in my head
When one instructor went to the first bed
She laid down a gift, all wrapped and keen
Addressed to the person from SSgt. Green
And just like that they went to the beds
Placing a tiny gift next to each trainee's heads
Big and small, some filled with cake
From Lindsey, Calderon, and Neice.. and even MSgt. Drake
There were red ones from Olsen and green ones from Hamby
Yellow ones from Halpain, a blue one just for me
From Stone and male Harris were the pola-dot ones
And Cabrero and Pavia gave out the striped ones
Just as soon as they started, the females were done
And I knew in the morning the trainees would have fun
The instructors soon left as quietly as before
When SSgt. Edwards paused at the door
She turned and grinned as to not cause a fright
And softly told us "Meery Christmas and good night."
I wrote this while I was in the Air Force for Christmas. Each person named was an instructor at the time, but I'm sure things have changed.
