 T'WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS(Quatrain)

~T'was The Night Before Christmas~
(Quatrain in mixed meters)


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

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

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

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

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.
