This was sent to us by a special client last year, too good not to share!
‘Twas the night before Christmas, Revised!
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all though the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled in bed for a long winter’s nap.
When at the foot of my bed there arose such a clatter,
I bolted upright to see what was the matter.
At the head of my bed, with a smile that was drawn,
Stood my esteemed realtor, Shauna O’Callaghan!
Why Shauna, I cried, you gave us a fright
Coming to our house in the middle of the night.
You should be at your home, what caused you to leave
To visit our home on this Christmas Eve?
That Gingerbread house I gave you last week
With the Gingerbread walls edged in icing and sweets
Well, I must have it back; circumstances are dire
I since have acquired a new first home buyer!
With an interest-free loan and approval in place
These first-time buyers now need a home base!
But Shauna, I cried in dismay, you are too late
Some parts of the house we inadvertently ate!
The door and the floor we had for our supper
And now it is just a sad fixer-upper!
To make matters worse one evening quite late,
We snacked on the rest; it’s now bulldozer bait!
She replied with a face that was sweet and forgiving
All is not lost; ‘tis the season for giving!
She then sprang to her car and drove out of sight
Exclaiming, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT
