Mike's Night Before Christmas - 2020 Edition

Twas my night before Christmas, when all through my town


Some neighbors were MAGAts, they supported a clown.


Their political sign still stood in their yard


As if their man's loss had left them quite scarred.



A holiday film & a bottle of booze


Would distract me from this & would help me to snooze.


Since I have never seen it before


"It's A Wonderful Life" my eve has in store.



When there on my phone came a shake & a beeping,


I picked it up quickly, some people were sleeping!


I looked at the post, my eyes started to roll.


Today of all days, it's an internet troll?



I went to his profile so that I can block


This waste of good oxygen, a loud mouthed cock.


It's time to relax & enjoy this old movie.


A needed distraction since I've felt rather moody.



A rough year it's been for me & for all,


This raging pandemic has made many fall.


I try to speak out in order to cope.


It's all I can do to cling on to hope.



The stories I see make me pick up my flask.


Because of their freedumbs, they won't wear a mask.


They whine & they moan til their mouth is a froth


They seem to be scared of a small piece of cloth.



I sipped more whiskey as I looked at the screen


It's been a long time since this next film I've seen.


I nuke some popcorn, channel surf past golf.


Then quickly sit down to start watching Rudolph.



One of my favorites since I was a kid


Stop motion animation I wish they still did.


Holiday films can be a bit droll


But this labor of love is just so full of soul.



The movie plays on as I notice my wince,


I ponder what's happened on last Christmas since.


The world has completely turned upside down.


A pandemic still rages across every town.



This year made a lot of folks cry.


Because their loved ones didn't have to die.


Some people ignored all science & reason


While cheering a racist who's guilty of treason.




When seeing injustice, we should raise a fuss


But today, all we ask is, "What's in it for us?"


A nation divided by violence & hate,


And all under the guise of "making us great."



Sometimes I get hate when I say what I think.


And that my good friends is one reason I drink.


I will always make jokes to help numb the pain,


They make me feel better & help keep me sane.



So think about this as you go on your way,


If I don't make you laugh, then please go away.


To those who debate everything that I do,


Yourself with a broomstick I wish you would screw.



To all my good friends who just finished this rhyme,


May your holiday be a jolly good time.


Good health & happiness I hope you have plenty.


Let the next year commence, fuck off 2020!
