… And despite all good cheer,
It sized up as “boringest night of the year.”
Still 36 hours until Christmas dawning,
And reruns of reruns were leaving ‘em yawning.
The tree decorating had happened last week
The lineup of movies appeared rather bleak.
The cookies were eaten; the sprinkles were scattered
No Christmas ‘till Christmas! That’s clearly what mattered.
Yet out on the web was a trove worth a look:
A digitized shelf-full of rare, classic books.
By Moore! and
And free off the web –
You won’t have to return it!
So, hold off those sugar-fueled siblings’ catfights
By letting them read “The Arabian Nights.”
And with one shopping day left, right next to that Wii™,
You can guarantee holiday books ‘neath that tree.
Merry Christmas to all … and to all, a good read!
