'Twas the Night Before 1-18-08
was the night before 1-18-08, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except maybe a whale louse.
The stockings were hung over Jamies' chair,
In hopes that Teddy soon would be there;
Jamie was nestled all snug in her bed,
While visions of "primary evidience" danced in her head;
Is it still lying on the floor or did she freeze it ASAP,
Will she mix it in a cocktail for a little night cap.
Later at the party there arose such a clatter,
They turned on the news to see what was the matter.
Away to the roof Rob flew like a flash,
Looked to the harbour and saw a big crash.
Things were exploding and starting to blow,
They ran down the stairs to the street below.
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a flying Statue of Libertys' head that filled them with fear.
Smashing the cars and the pavement it came.
Rob whistled, and shouted and called them by name;
"Where's Jason! and Lily! and that 11 dollar guy!"
There's Marlena and Hud with a camera to his eye.
Oh My God! It's alive and it's huge they did say,
And whatever that thing is it's coming their way.
It was big and green and toppling skyscrapers,
Debris rained down and dust and papers.
Rob had a plan, he would rescue Beth,
Maybe she would love him if he saved her from death.
Then Marlena got bit and exploded it seemed,
And Lily and Hud also left Robs' team.
So just Beth and Rob were left huddling in fright,
1-18-08 was one helluva night.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
