The night before Christmess

I came up with this the other day. It just flowed out in about 20 minutes.

I think it is pretty funny. There are some local Seattle references, but I think most people will get it. I mean really, who isn't making fun of Seattle sports teams?


The Night Before Christmess
Drew Blackstone

‘Tis right before Christmas and looking real bad

The world situation’s gone incredibly sad

You might be wondering what’s got me so blue

You see my 401K’s chock full of WaMu

Back in D.C. McCain is cursing his luck

While Michelle and Barack can feast on lame duck

Now George aint upset he’s no longer on top

Cause now he speak for one hundred grand a pop

GM and Ford have sent their lists out

Beseeching St. Nick for a huge bailout

They’ll get what they want they don’t have to fret

Tho’ they may have to sell one or two private jets.

It is nice to see gas prices drop drastically

Now I can fill up my green SUV

The bank CEO’s are enjoying their loot

All bundled up tight in their gold parachutes

Back on the home front things are no better

I pinch every penny and wear dryer lint sweaters

Rossi got beat so I still have a job

But I’m taxed to the hilt and have to live like a slob

Down in King County folks are feeling the strain

Of being governed by a council of criminally insane

They tell us light rail is on the right track

A one way fare costs the shirt off your back

It’s supposed to ease traffic and make us all smile

But is it really worth over three billion a mile

Even local sports have me down in the dumps

They can’t win enough to have a good slump

The Mariners and Seahawks offer no cheer

But unlike the Sonics, at least they’re still here

It’s so hard this season when our lives are in tatters

To see the rich getting richer and the fat getting fatter

We do all that we can to hold down our forts

Knowing full well we take it in the shorts

We can’t make ends meet no matter how much we beg

All we get for breakfast is scrambled nest egg

Every night for dinner we get served a raw deal

And just grin and bear it as we carve Happy Meal

We want to run for the life boats cause this ship’s run aground

But we know that at some point it’ll all turn around

So with hope for tomorrow let’s have fun tonight

Merry Christmas to all and now pass the Bud Light

Song lyric for the day -

"Have yourself a merry little Christmas" - Various artists
