Christmas Eve 2005 The Night Before Christmas - Southeast Texas, 2005

Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the town,
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!"

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!
