'Twas the Weekend Before Christmas

'Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the house
Erin was running around like a mad woman, enough to scare a mouse.
A stocking was hiding in some forgotten box somewhere,
At least they didn't have kids expecting St Nick to be there.

Jared was nestled all snug in his bed,
While Erin made sugar-plums, fudge, and pumpkin bread.
Her outfit was a fright, gosh how she needed a nap,
But all she could think about was how to hide all this crap?!

When out on their tiny lawn there arose such a clatter,
Erin sat down her spatula and sat down her batter.
She marched to the front door, quick as a flash,
Knocked those silly bells off the door and then threw them in the trash.

The moon was bright that night but still no sign of snow,
If only the rain would freeze we'd be ready to go!
When, what did Erin's wondering eyes should appear,
But a delivery truck man with eyes like a deer.

Up to the house he walked, so rushed and so quick,
Erin knew in a moment it was from Amazon One-Click.
More rapid than eagles those packages they came,
The delivery man smiled and called out my name.

"Erin! Oh, how I sure hope that's your name!
You're my last stop of the evening,
so don't you dare play a game!"

He spoke not another word, but went straight to work,
Having me sign for the package, then turned with a jerk.
And waving his hand he quickly said goodbye with a wave,
And back to his truck, leaving behind a trail of aftershave.

Erin sprang inside to the house, so joyful she could shout,
For this was the last gift of the season, without a doubt!
She wrapped that package with haste and finally called it a night,
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!
