COLLABORATING FOR CHRISTMAS
It was the day before Christmas, he was hungry, mighty hungry,
He stalked the pantry, the cupboards were empty,
He didn't want to sleep, he was too hungry for that
Guess what, no, not guest what? Guess what???
The last festival he had eaten was, Halloween
No, not the last time he had eaten, the last festival!!!
For he was, The Eater Of Great Joy
But that, could never satisfy him.
He had heard about Santa.
He had heard about A Star.
Maybe he’s the magi
who never crossed the desert.
He felt so alone, so left back.
He waddled to the window,
For he thought he heard a flash
He opened his hungry mouth to taste stardust
Then he burped, and out flew Halloween
Spinning in reverse back to October.
Miracle of miracles, he felt his body shinning
He heard angels singing
He smelt a man in a red suit offering
Milk and cookies to him
Milk and cookies!!! are these eat-ables?
Yes! answered the dear old man and vanished
With a Ho Ho Ho

who never crossed the desert".
