Twas the night before Christmas,
When a duck hit the sled.
Santa fell out,
And dropped on his head.
He was barely alive,
This jolly old elf.
Being the Christmas Season,
I thought of myself.
'Hey,' I cried, 'I don't see any presents for me here.'
So I concussed him with a Christmas pudding,
And stole the reindeer.
