"Twas the Night Before Online Shopping"

'Twas the Night Before-Online Shopping

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, except me and my mouse.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

But nary a present was seen anywhere.

The weeks had slipped by me, my time I had squandered,

The pressure now on, I surfed and I pondered,

I needed some presents, and I needed them quick,

Else I'd look like the Grinch instead of St. Nick.

My brain getting soggy my hopes getting dim,

It looked like the Grinches were going to win,

When what to my wandering cursor appeared,

But the mother of all Web sites! (I let out a cheer!)

There were toys of all sizes and shapes there before

And with a click of my mouse, I opened the door.

On Amazon! On KB Toys! Toys RUs I adore.

On Barnes and on Noble! On E-Bay and more!

I strolled through the aisles and virtual shelves,

Toys flew to my shopping cart as if placed there by elves.

Every toy I could imagine was there at my touch

(And maybe I ordered just a little too much.)

Then I moved to the checkout, I was now feeling fine,

Isn't this wonderful? No standing in line!

I got them all shipped before it was too late.

Overnighted to me! (Ain't UPS great?)

The presents now ordered, my credit card maxed

I can sip on some eggnog, and try to relax.

And til January comes, with its bills out of sight

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good midnight.
