The Night Before Christmas 
Our Town 

Tis the night before Christmas and all through the 
Debris of all kind is stacked in a mound 
Houses are beat up, trees are not there 
The landscape is different and curiously bare 

Fences are gone and the dogs have got out 
Insurance agents are nowhere about 
Mold in its grandeur is lining the walls 
Inside the cabinets and all through the halls 

Moms are exhausted and daddies are spent 
They're paying their house notes and now paying rent 
FEMA is long gone, the Red Cross has split 
Searching for new towns disasters have hit 

The children are restless as they lay in their beds 
Troubled thoughts filling their heads 
Can Santa find them amid all the rubble 
Or will he think it's just not worth the trouble 

Then out of the night comes the sound of small hoofs 
Prancing and pawing atop the blue roofs 
Though Santa's landmarks were not where they'd been 
The shine of the trailers guided him in 

He managed somehow to deliver the toys 
To all the deserving good girls and boys 
And they heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight 
"It takes more than Rita to mess up this night!"
