[NAME]’S CHRISTMAS ADVENTURE
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
[NAME] was dreaming, he was chasing a mouse.
His family were sleeping all snug in their beds,
whilst visions of sugar plums danced through their heads.
[NAME] awoke when he heard a strange noise.
Could it be Santa, with wonderful toys?
He climbed to the window and pushed back the blinds.
Stared through the glass to see what he could find.
He looked and looked 'till he could look no more.
Then suddenly there came a knock at the door.
[NAME], he ran, ran as fast as he could,
came to a stop and just stood. Just stood.
He bared his teeth and let out a bark.
His eyes were alert, he could see through the dark.
The door creaked and so did the handle,
when slowly but surely emerged a candle.
“Don't be afraid [NAME], I mean you no harm”.
The candle emerged into a big, red arm.
Then a boot, and a leg and a big red coat,
the figure entered and cleared his throat.
“[NAME], Oh [NAME] you know it is I,
the one they all wait for with reindeer that fly.
My big white beard and my sack full of toys
for all the sleeping girls and boys.
I need your help, to finish my journey
before all the children wake up early.
The earth is foggy, I need your eyes
to help me through the midnight skies.
So come along, it's almost morning”.
And they disappeared without any warning.
So off they went, to save the day,
so all of the children could play and play.
The journey was soon over, he could no longer fly,
and [NAME] retired with a twinkle in his eye.
He fell asleep and dreamed of that mouse,
whilst everything was quiet all through the house.
He awoke in the morning and under the tree.
Was a gift labelled [NAME] but what could it be?
“From Santa with love, and a big thank you.
Have a merry Christmas and may peace be with you.”
That's the story, about a dog with a dream,
and how sometimes, just sometimes,
things aren't what they seem.
