THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS (locksmith style)(humor)

by Clarence (Sonny) White  
10/08/2007 / Poetry

Twas the night before Christmas
And we stand at the door
With sacks full of presents
We bought at the store

We went to the mall
And Pa locked the lock
When we tried to open it
We were in for a shock

Between home and the store
The keys came up missing
I had tried to tell Pa
But he just wouldn't listen

A buck and a half
For an extra spare key
But a mere Lad of 16
He wouldn't listen to me

I'm more than unhappy
As I stare at the deadbolt
And Pa on his cell phone
Calling Locksmiths for quotes

It's the night before Christmas
Do we have a prayer
Is it really possible
We'll get a Locksmith out here

The thirteenth call got an answer
And yes he'll be out
As Pa hangs up the phone
We all give a shout

It's starting to get cold
The wind starts to blow
And then it starts snowing
Well, wouldn't you know

The hour that we waited
Seemed a lot more like four
An old fat man like Santa
Came and opened our door

And I heard him exclaim
Before he drove out of sight
Compliments of Santa
It's Christmas Eve night
