The Week Before Christmas
By Dr. Rus D. Jeffrey – 2011

Sometimes these little poems just come to me…

T’was the week before Christmas when all through the mall,
Every one rushed around creating a big squall.
Pushing and shoving was all one could see,
As everyone seemed to be on a shopping spree.

What happened to good cheer and being nice,
Seems to be replaced with the throwing of mace.
The screaming and yelling the cursing and swearing,
Just all seems to be very over-bearing.

As for me and my house we have determined,
The week before Christmas will be left for serving.
As the big day approaches don’t belly-ache,
Instead take time to bake Jesus a birthday cake.
