‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (A RETELLING)



‘Twas the night before Christmas,

when all through the house

creatures were stirring, roaches and rats.

The stockings weren’t hung by the chimney with care,

for they knew that St. Nicholas would never come there.

The children lay freezing on the floor

while visions of okra danced through their heads

And they heard him say as he flew out of sight,

“Sour¬†Christmas to all, and to all a bad night!”
