Bri Posted December 16, 2003 Share Posted December 16, 2003 'Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house, Every creature was hurtin', even the mouse. The toys were all broken, their batteries dead; Santa's passed out with some ice on his head. Ribbons and wrapping paper cover the floor, While upstairs the family continues to snore. And I in my T-shirt, new Reeboks and jeans, Went into the kitchen and started to clean. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the sink to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the curtains, and threw up the sash. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a little white truck, with an oversized mirror. The driver was smiling, so lively and grand; The patch on his jacket said "U.S. Postman." Reaching into his pack, he grinned like a fox And stuffed a handful of bills in our mailbox. Bill after bill after bill they all came As he whistled and shouted and called them by name: "Now Dillard's, now Broadway's, now Penny's, and Sears; Here's Robinson's, Levitz's, and Target and Mervyn's. To the top of your limit, every store, every mall, Now charge away--charge away--charge away all!" He laughed and he whistled as he finished his work. He filled up our box and then turned with a jerk. He got in his truck and he drove down the road, Driving lots faster with just half a load. Then I heard him exclaim, with great holiday cheer, "Enjoy what you've got, you'll be paying all year!" Link to comment
