'Twas the week before Christmas

"T’was the week before Christmas,

And all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring,

Except my Mac mouse…"

"As I scrolled side-to-side,

My brain came up racked,

I said to myself,

"My God I’ve been hacked!"

"My dilemma was clear,

Through no fault of mine,

If the kids were to get gifts,

I could not do it on-line."

"So, off I sped,

Straight out of the door,

To do what I hate most,

Shop in a real store."

"From counter to counter,

I sprang like an elf,

But only to find,

There was nothing but shelf."

"My kids would hate me,

Of this I was certain,

To return empty handed,

My name would be "curtains."

"As the kids all slept

With their warm blankets on,

I tried one more boot,

And up came "Amazon!"

"I cried a loud cheer,

Put some gifts in my cart,

Then pressed "two-day mail,"

And blessed my own heart."

"So, let it be said,

That you were all duly warned,

know Christmas is for giving,

and you’ll never be scorned.""
