Ho, ho, ho, and a belated
Merry Christmas to you all!
In the while where you’ve been fitfully
Tossing and turning before finally falling
Asleep like a log, the mischievous dark
Little men have been hard at work,
Sawing the great twisted trunk
Of the world tree and constructing
Myriad manageable boxes where
All of us, once we wake, will fit
Perfectly without losing a second’s sleep.
