Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when there in the House
The battle was raging to impeach a louse
The charges were leveled, each one quite alarming
On how to unseat a not so prince charming

The atmosphere heated though outside was cold
No place for the timid, the rhetoric bold
"We're tired of him, we have suffered this fool
He's petty, vindictive and mercilessly cruel"

When one voice arose above all the chatter
"He's lost his way, he knows not what matters"
And all eyes then turned from where the words came
With red suit and white beard, they all knew his name

The room did go quiet, there came forth no sound
And then from the silence came one voice profound
He said "come to me", they all gathered near
"Now take this to heart, these truths please hold dear"

He nodded to all, and over they came
He pointed and shouted and called some by name
"Now Nancy and Adam and yes Devon too
Come Jerrold and Zoe and Hakeem, please do"

"I've places to go and children to see
Tonight of all nights other places to be
I've stockings to fill, my reindeer await
I can't linger long, I cannot be late"

"Donald's been naughty, he's never been nice
And so many stockings, he's just stuffed with ICE
He deserves nothing, take back his toys
And pass them all out to good girls and boys"

"But all of this hatred you show towards each other
Is not what I want, you are sisters and brothers,
Good will toward one, good will toward all
On Christmas eve, please, please heed my call"

And then he was gone, right in front of their eyes
And if I had not seen it, I'd say it's a lie
But jolly St Nick he was saddened by discord
He knew that this did not sit well with his Lord

While Dasher and Dancer, Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
Took to the sky with old Santa and sled
Those gathered around took to heart what he said

And at least for one evening they put down their swords
Replaced them with soft words and good wishes towards
All that had gathered on this hallowed ground
And throughout the chamber did these words resound

"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night"
For one night this House a most beautiful sight

No doubt, the day after this night of good will, we will be arguing whether Red Rudolph is a Republican or a communist.-
