I posted this at the RT as a rant...Thanks to Nordette, responding with "No No Ho Ho" I figured some of you might relate.


Five days before X-mas

and all through the house,

people are trippin

I'm ready to bounce...

straight out of my chair

smackin them upside their heads,

then when I'm chillin

I'll tell them Santa is dead!

They'll cry and they'll shriek

as they think I'm unkind,

so I'll toke on some medicinal

weed and sip on fine wine,

after a hot bubble bath

as I'm fallin asleep,

thinking over and over...

how revenge is so sweet.


I know good and well that everyone running around with smiles frozen on their faces is not feeling the holidays.

***Disclaimer***  Even though I felt like spiderwoman this particular night and was walking the walls and ceilings, No children or Santa's were hurt or smacked...that

If you haven't already read Nordette's come back to this write go to

Happy Holidaze's to all and don't lose your humour.

And I want to assure you no Turkeys, Chickens or Pigs were harmed to facilitate our family Christmas - except for the ones we ate.

This was a witty one and a message I'm sure many will relate to.

Good write. Some people were feeling no pain whatsoever. At least no elves or Santas were harmed in the writing of this poem.
