Twasthe Night before Ho Ho

Recommended Posts

Oh, the happy memories of spending a holiday in Emporia!!!!!

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

Not a creature was happy, it all seemed so gay;

The stockings were all folded and deep in their drawers, in fear that the Way Corps soon would be there;

The children were crying, alone in their beds,

While thoughts of wood spoons danced in their hands.

The bunkbeds were full, to us just a "day",

Cuz we'd celebrated September, now so far away.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,

We all sprung from our bunks to see what was the matter.

Away down the hall we all ran in a flash, then out the wood doors and the swing we did pass.

The stench of the cow farm hit us just like bricks,

5 feet of deep snow, Kansas winters so stinks

When, what to our bleery eyes should appear,

But a large power cushman, and eight nasty Corps men

With a fat little blind guy, so drunk to the quick,

I knew in a moment it must be St. Vic.

More ugly than old hags the Corps guys they came,

They yelled, and they shouted, and called us by name(tag)

Now First Corps,Now Second, Now Third and the Fourth,

Now RegTags, Now Staff, Now Juniors and more.

And then, in a twinkling, I saw in the lawn,

The prancing and pawing of each little pawn.

The stump of his see-gar he held tight in his teeth,

And the smoke filled the air with the stench so you reek.

A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,

Soon let us know we had something to dread.

He spoke not a word, but just pointed toward class,

And let us all know to march there, and get there quite fast.

He sprang to the podium, and taught for 6 hours,

Because we weren't bound by days, seasons, or hours,

And when we were weary, and famished and ....ed,

He said "Happy Ho Ho, see what you have missed!"
