'Twas The Night Before KVK
‘Twas the night before KVK, and all through the Kingdom
Not a creature was stirring, not even a Minotaur.
The stockings were hung by the forge with care,
In hopes that Athena, soon would be there.
The troops were nestled, all snug in their villas,
While visions of war rallies danced in their heads.
The Queen in her kerchief, and the King in his cap,
Had just settled down for a very short winters nap, (as long as Line doesn’t go bong.)
When out in the forest there arose such a clatter,
The King sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the watchtower he flew like a flash,
Put on his battle gear, including a newly forged sash.
The glint of fire on a nearby farm
Gave lustre of mid-day to the alliance below
When what to the King’s eyes should appear,
But a really tough looking Santa, with 8, not so tiny, SH21s.
With a little old emperor driver, so lively and quick
I knew it a moment, that Saint Nick had joined GOW!
He called out OP, and rally points to his crew…..
“Now Dasher, Now Dancer, Now Prancer, and Vixen!
On Comet, On Cupid, On Donner, and Blitzen!
To the top of the alliance city, at the brink of their walls, but then…..
Dash Away!, Dash Away!, Dash Away All!!!!!
As dry food, that before, the wild hurricane flies,
When they meet with a Hydra, mount to the skies,
Just so, up to the kingdom-top the 21s flew,
But, with a sleigh full of Toys, and Emperor Nickolas too!!!
And then, in a twinkling, the King heard on his roof,
The prancing and pawing of each little T4 hoof.
As he drew in his head, and was turning around,
Down the forge chimney, Emperor Nickolas came with a bound.
He was dressed in Gold Gear, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were NOT tarnished, (because gold doesn’t tarnish…..).
A bundle of TOYS he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a gold peddler, just opening his PayPal account.
His eyes, how they twinkled!
His dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, and his nose, like a fire breathing dragon!
His (I won’t say droll, because he might make me the “Fool of all Kingdoms”…..minus 3000% everything!)
And the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.
The stump of a pipe, he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face, and a little round belly (actually, smoking abbs…don’t forget me when it’s time to bestow those gifts )
That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.
We was chubby, and plump, a right jolly old elf, (not really, he has smoking abbs!, and a Porsche! (don’t forget those boosts )
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself. (not really boss ,….honest…)
A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know, I had nothing to dread. (whewwww)
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings (with gold), then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger, aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.
He sprang to his SH21 900 Trillion sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew, like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all!, and to all a Good Night!"
I had fun with this, and I’ve got to say at this season, that I find all of you Lords and Ladies to be fine people! My alliance members care for each other, and help, whenever they can!
These are the things that we can find brilliant in our world!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and best cheer for the Year to Come, to all in GOW!
