T’was the night before Christmas and all through the flat,
Not a creature was stirring – not even the Cat.

The stockings weren’t hung because vampires don’t care,
Peace and goodwill are not hopes that we share.

But you, friends, are nestled all snug in your beds,
With nightmares of Jonathon loose in your heads.

Forget jolly holidays and all of that crap,
I hoped I’m the horror invading your nap.

Yet, while I sat there, lost in such musing,
There was an interruption, not of my choosing…

For out on my fire ‘scape came a faint noise,
Which sure as fuck wasn’t some old dude with toys.

Up to the window I crept, to the light
And peeked through the curtain out into the night.

The moon paled next to the the flashy light show,
From decorative Christmas crap strung far below.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
From out of the shadows upon midnight clear?

Who sprang over the sill and swiftly came in?,
But Py! With a sack on his back – and a grin.

He unwrapped my present – why, Py, you old sinner!
He’d bought me fresh Santa Claus home for my dinner.

So healthy and plump, with fake beard and red hat,
And I laughed when I saw him (and so did the Cat.)

We spoke not a word, but went straight to our work,
The three of us soon finished off that old jerk.

Py picked his teeth and the Cat cleaned its paws,
While I cleared away, and mopped up the lost Claus.

A simple night’s sleighing, but there’s something so sweet,
When consumerism means Christmas icons you eat.

‘Tis indulgence season – my appetite’s whet,
Now my gift to you is more warning than threat:

 

Dear friends, let me say – with wit (nay, with bite…)

Fuck Christmas- be wary.

 

I’m still hunting tonight
