The Night before Christmas in BDUs:

It was there on the lawn when I got home
last night from where I’ve been.
I’m not sure but I think somewhere
around about a half past ten.

An old glowing brown sack full of gifts
with kids around it, with sheepish grins.
I know from their, not me dad looks,
they’ve been up to something then.

That cloud of dark smoke in the East,
I saw through the back door screen.
The big oak tree’s branches were
strangely snow fallen clean.

My R.P.G. had recently been fired
laying there just dropped, I know,
and slay bells were all around,
in the blood spattered snow.

Old Saint Nick must have lost his way
in the dark and had quite a fright.
For it seems he drove his sled too close
to the kids gunnery range last night.

Poor Santa! And what's up with Rudolph? Has he been sleeping on the job again or what?

Wow, won't all the kids be dissappointed! We'll all have to pretend to be Santa now...

Geez, a gunnery range. Not good.

And I thought grand-ma getting run over by a reindeer was bad. This took the cake, Elis!
