The Christmas miracle

user-gravatar Headshot

Santa is a truckerTwas the night before Christmas
And down the long road
Not a creature was stirring
Unless under a load

The stockings were waiting
With his family for hours
For their trucker to return
From the emergency re-power

Ma was in the kitchen,
He had taken off his cap
When the call came through from dispatch
Ma said, â€śDon’t answer that.”

But a truck had broken down
With a load of bikes and toys
People had ordered
For good girls and boys

“I gotta go, Ma
I’ll be back in a flash
The kids need their toys
And the bonus is cash.”

He sprang into the cab
Gave his old dog a whistle,
And broke the silence of the night
With a Detroit Diesel

Ma heard him exclaim
As he drove out of sight
“I’ll be home for dinner –
Tomorrow night!”

Merry Christmas from the Parker Family. Thanks for doing the job you do.
