O Christmas Woe O Christmas Woe

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
The family lays sick, including the spouse
The 12 yo's prone on the couch with a pail
While the 18 yo's down in the basement, and frail.
The wife had to give up and go on to bed
So me with my beer and a lime keeps me fed.
But as bad as it sounds (and it could be much worse)
I'm glad they're alive, so I need no more verse.
