~T'was The Night Before Christmas ~
( Quatrain in Mixed Meters )


~O~



T'was the night before Christmas
Didn't have a single dime to spare
I've lost almost everything in my name
Katrina left me with nothing I swear.

~o~

My clothes came from Salvation Army
And the  food from the Red Cross
Wilma came for a visit too and poof!
That really made me so angry and so crossed.

~o~

My roof leaks now even if doesn't rain
And the job I had is lost and gone
Forget about presents and turkey day
At least I dream with all the stores and coupons.

~o~

The power is out didn't have money to pay
In the dark I try not to pout and swear today
My credit cards are in deep trouble and my
Bank account probably won't see another new day.

~o~

But waiting are cookies and milk  for Santa
Maybe this year he can be really nice to me
Every time I  see his jolly face I still
Feel like laughing all the way on Christmas Day too.




~O~
