The Week Before Christmas (aka Car Wars)

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

‘Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the town,
All the creatures were shopping, and pushing horns down.
“Hoooonk!!!” went the horns, “Get out of my way!
Don’t you know Christmas is just a few days away?!”
The parking lots were full with cars and shoppers galore,
Everyone pushing and shoving to get to the store.
It mattered not that it’s a time for good cheer,
Or that they had all known it was coming all year.
This was the week for their gift shopping to do,
Making going for groceries a hazard to you.
I drove along carefully, knowing no one would yield,
With their last minute shopper personality revealed.
When off to my left there arose such a clatter,
I quickly turned my head to see what was the matter.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a bright flash,
Seems two hurried up shoppers their cars they did crash.
One of them yelled, “Hey watch where you go!”
The other one said, “I couldn’t stop on the snow!”
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But an officer’s car, with eight flashing lights clear,
With a burly young driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Sgt. Nick.
More rapid than shoppers, his badges they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called the drivers by name;
“Now, Billy! Now, Joey! Just what did you do?
Seems that I’ve got to write tickets for you two!
To the side of my car! Spread your hands and stand tall!
Don’t dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
Let this shopping adventure be a lesson to you,
Get started in January, whatever you do!
