A Muddy Christmas to all....

'Twas the night before Christmas;
 the rain poured on the house.

All the creatures were mud covered.
Eek! Is that a mouse??

The children were splashing and making mud pies;
It's all fun and games till someone gets mud in their eyes.

Eöl in his muck boots, and I in my slicker
Ran for cover as the rain came quicker.

The moon, how it glistened, on puddles galore;
I rolled my eyes when I saw all the mud on the floor

Then, in a twinkling, I heard from above,
"Dasher, Dancer, give us a shove!

We're deep in the mud, the sleigh is stuck fast!
If this is a yearly thing, this one will be my last!"

"Where is the snow, the sparkling white?
Why is everything glorpy tonight?

I've lost both my boots, somewhere in the muck
Next year, forget the deer, I'm buying a truck!"
