'Twas The Day After Christmas

Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house,
Every creature was hurting-- even the mouse.

The toys were all broken, their batteries dead;
Santa passed out, with some ice on his head.

Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while
Upstairs the family continued 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."

With a handful of bills, he grinned like a fox
Then quickly he stuffed them into our mailbox.

Bill after bill, after bill, they still came.
Whistling and shouting he called them by name:

"Now Dillard's, now Broadway's, now Penny's and Sears
Here's Levitz's and Target's and Mervyn's -- all here!!

To the tip or your limit, every store, every mall,
Now chargeaway-chargeaway-chargeaway all!"

He whooped and he whistled as he finished his work.
He filled up the box, and then turned with a jerk.

He sprang to his truck and he drove down the road,
Driving much faster with just half a load.

Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer,

10 opinionated prattle:

Heidi said...

hmm such potty talk dear jd.....but i am also wondering???

Tormen Tagain said...

Good question Mr. Plumma But did she/he not already answer the "who the hell is Tormen Tagain ?" question by containing it within their own posted question ? If the question is read appropriately and with all literal interpretation then the identity of "Tormen Tagain" IS actually "who the Hell".

Of course we must first remove the question mark at the end of the line to find this clue. Possibly tho it was intentional with the question mark to take our site off the secret and true identity of Tormen Tagain. But, on the other hand, since I am Tormen Tagain I may be utilizing this same method to maintain a degree of enigmatic integrity and anonymity to expand the "out of the box thinking" concept into areas where it really has no purpose what so ever.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
