T'was the Night Before Christmas

    T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the jungle
    Not a creature was stirring, not a monkeigh's aunt nor uncle.
    The stockings were hung on the trees with care,
    In hopes that Monkeigh Claus soon would be there.

    The monkeighs were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of bananas danced in their heads.
    And Firekid in his masterwork, and Tzara and her cat,
    Had just settled down for a long quiet nap,

    When out in the jungle there arose such a clatter.
    I sprang from my hammock to see what was the matter.
    Away through the trees I flew like a flash,
    Sliding down branches and "Ook Ook'ing" very fast.

    The moon shone bright on the ground way below
    and what did I see? It was covered in snow!
    And what to my suprised eyes did appear?
    But a miniature sleigh, and eight furry rears.

    With a big belly, and two big monkey paws
    I knew in a moment it must be Monkeigh Claus.
    More rapid than dragons his helpers they came,
    and he Ook'd and he shouted and called them by name!

    "Now Coolstone! Now iMurse, Now Lion and Barett
    On, Hunted! On, Andrei! On, Hameigh, and Ardit!
    To the top of the place, to the top of the trees!
    Now run away! Run away! Don't let them see!"

    As bananas in a hurricane fly,
    when met with an obstacle, up to the sky.
    So up to the treetop the helpers they flew
    With a sleigh full of presents, and Monkeigh Claus too.

    And then, in a moment, I heard far above
    The sound of monkeighs delivering presents with love.
    As I climbed up to greet them, and turned around
    Down the tree Monkeigh Claus came with a bound.

    His fur was pure white, from his head to his foot,
    and he smelled of bananas and ripening fruit.
    A bundle of goodies he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a merchant, just opening his pack.

    His eyes- how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
    His cheeks were quite frozen, his nose like a berry!
    His wide white mouth was drawn up like a bow,
    And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

    A Christmas star he held in his hand,
    he raised it up and it twinkled so grand.
    He had a wide face and a big round belly,
    That shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly!

    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old man,
    And I laughed when I saw him, for Christmas was at hand!
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
    And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
    And laying his finger aside of his nose,
    And giving a nod, up the tree he rose!

    He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew at the speed of a missle.
    But I head him exclaim as he soared out of sight,
    "Merry Christmas TDM, and to all a good night!
