Twas the Day after Christmas

Twas The Day After Christmas[p]
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 passed out, with
some ice on his head.[p]
Wrapping and ribbons just covered the floor, while upstairs the family
continued to snore. And I in my T-shirt, new Reeboks and jeans, I 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.[p]
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 "US POSTMAN."[p]
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 Robinson's,
Levitz's and
Target and Mervyn's. To the tip of your limit, every store, every mall, now
charge away,
charge away, charge away all!"[p]
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.[p]
Then I heard him exclaim with great holiday cheer, "Enjoy what you got.
.you'll be paying all year

Wake up call for America this morning..Ye gads..Waiters in New York City were getting 500 bucks a hour, and cooks were topping at 1500 buck's per hour to work last night..Figure in another 20% for gratuities..Heeeee. Do you suppose we have a future somewhere?? Thanks for the neat poetic justice!!

    JJ,[p]Thanks for the humorous dose of reality. I hope it doesn't apply. Now that the countdown is over do we count up?[p]Spin
