An Almost Christmas Tragedy

Last Christmas you gave it a good fight, but only one side would light.

After the season I put you away, a little pray I did say.

Out of the basement you came this year to be another Christmas hit.

But when I plugged you in, all I could say was, "Oh shit."

You died right before my eyes, there will be no Christmas surprise.

Gone was my first illuminated dear, a little pout and I shed a tear.
The herd will never be the same,
No one to play the silly night reindeer game.
Quick! I had to think fast!
The Christmas season just began and it must last!
Oh gosh, I have to get one more!
Credit card in hand, I drove to the store!
Two boxes I found on the Walmart shelf,
with a little chuckle, I grabbed one for myself!

With quick Chinese assembly instructions, I had it made in the shade!
A hodge podge of reindeer, none homemade.

But its silly little things like this, that makes it all the more reason,
to enjoy the laughter and joy of the Christmas season!
