Twas the Night before Blood Moon and all through the forest, the creatures they stirred and roused up to chorus….. want more? Then you need Daily Flash 2012: 366 Days of Flash Fiction (Leap Year Edition) ;) bahahaaa
Okay, okay, seriously though, to all my followers and friends, Merry Christmas! It has been an honour and pleasure to spend this past year with you and I thank-you for allowing me to be a part of your lives. I’m very blessed to have gotten to know so many wonderful writers, authors, and supporters! This one’s for you.
Twas the night - Hockey style! Cheers!!!!!
Twas the night before the big game, and all through the rink
Not a faucet was dripping, not even the sink.
The flags were all hung upon the rafters with care,
In hopes that screaming crowds soon would be there.
The fans were snuggled all warm in their beds,
While visions of triple overtime goals danced in their heads.
Managers and agents lie tucked in their sacks
Dreaming of revenue and extending contracts.
When out on the ice surface arose such a clatter,
The zamboni man ran to see what was the matter.
Away to the scorekeepers box he ran like a flash,
Tore open the door and watched unabashed.
The spotlight now shining on the freshly laid ice,
Made him rub his eyes, stop, and blink twice.
When what to his wondering eyes should appear,
But teams of famous players sporting shinny gear.
With laughter and ribbing, they fought for the puck,
And he could hardly believe how great was his luck!
“Go Howe! Go Hull! Go Lemieux and go Gretzky!
On Sakic, on Orr! On Crosby and Fleury!
From one end and back till you’re in front of the pipes,
Now shoot! Shoot I tell ya, the timing is right!”
He sprang from the bench, to the teams gave a whistle,
Immediately they started like they’d been shot with a pistol,
They smiled winning smiles and faded out of sight,
“Happy hockey season to all, and to all a good night!”
