Twas the night before Christmas, about half-way through.
(The clocks in the house showed the time to be two.)
The parents were nestled in slumber so deep,
But Stuart and Drakey could not get to sleep.
They’d done all the time-honored things, Christmas Eve
Before both their parents were ready to leave
The boys in their bunk beds to sleep through the night.
Yes, each of the kids had done everything right.
Of the Christmas routine, not a thing did they lack:
They’d hung up their stockings, set out Santa’s snack,
They’d sung all the carols, donned Christmas PJ’s
And brushed all their teeth in the usual ways.
They’d been bedtime-storied, been tucked in and kissed:
Not one of the Christmas Eve things had been missed!
