Think About It: “Twas The Night” Revisited

‘Twas the weekend before Christmas, and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, except for the clicking of that incessant computer mouse,

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

Heck, they cost ten bucks each, so I used them to wear;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions from Facebook danced in their heads;

And mamma in her muumuu and I in my cap,

Had just settled down from shopping at The Gap,

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

I sprang up from bed, though I've grown a bit fatter;

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Propped open old louvers, but a faulty one crashed,

When, what to my wandering eyes should appear,

A guy rummaging for cans, and I just sighed "oh dear";

Now darn it, now come on, now this can't be so,

In a land of such plenty, yet some have no dough;

His eyes, how they twinkled, his dimples how merry,

His demeanor so pleasant, his fragrant lei plumeri(a),

He spoke not a word but kept straight at his work,

I said nary a word lest he think me a jerk,

As he turned to continue his trek in the night,

He looked at me, smiled, and said "it's all right";

And I realize this season brings happiness and joy,

But let's help each other, with goodness deployed,

Merry Christmas Hawaii, and to all a good night,

Continue the fine fight to always do right;

We must do what we can, we must never ever quit,

We must always be conscious, and think about it…
