Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house,
Every creature was hurting-even the mouse.
The toys were all broken, their batteries were dead;
Santa passed out, with some ice on his head.
Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while
Upstairs the family continued to snore.
And I in my T-shirt, new Reeboks and jeans,
Went into the kitchen and started to clean.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a little white truck, with a oversized mirror.
The driver was smiling, so lively and grand;
The patch on his jacket said "US MAILMAN"
With a handful of bills, he grinned like a WOLF
Then quickly he stuffed them into the mailbox.
Bill after bill, after bill they still came.
Whistling and shouting he called them by name;
"Now Dillard's, now Walmart, now Penny's and Sears
Here's Levitz's and Target's and Kohl's-all here"
To the tip of your limit, every store, every mall,
Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all"
He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work.
He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.
He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road
Driving much faster with just half a load.
Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer.
"ENJOY WHAT YOU GOT...YOU'LL BE PAYING ALL YEAR!"
I wish you all well, and hope to here from you all next YEAR".....
Have a great Holiday Season and may GOD Bless You and Your's.....
