'Twas the Day Before Christmas - Home Renovation Style

'Twas the day before Christmas, when all through the site, Morgan was texting – something wasn't right

There were stockings and a tree – all decorated with care, But the countertop ordered, still wasn’t there!

The crew was content with their family at home While visions of change orders would not leave Brandon alone

They made out a punch list, they’ve done this before Work would resume in a few days more …

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, Morgan placed down the pad to see what was the matter.

Away to the window Brandon flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The sun punched through clouds to the ground down below, Everyone was happy there wasn't any snow

Then, what to Morgan’s eyes should appear, But a sleigh, and a man, and eight tiny reindeer!

"Must be a weird neighbor,” those two thought real quick It didn't even occur, it might be St. Nick

They went back to work and tried to drown out the sound But the man whistled, and shouted, and called all around:

"Now! Dasher, now! Dancer, now! Prancer, and Vixen, "On! Comet, on! Cupid, on! Donner and Blitzen; "To the side of the house! Next to the new wall!

"Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"


A huge blow of wind came gushing around

Thankfully, the tarps stayed attached to the ground

And out to the side of the house the deer flew

With a sleigh full of toys and a countertop too!

They thought they were dreaming and were concerned for the roof Where the heck was Jerry? This must be a spoof.

Brandon drew in his head and turned back around Holy moly standing right there St. Nicholas was found

He was all dressed in red from his head to his toe

And behind him, was open, the dining room window

He carried the counter - a real strain on his back, It was marbled and solid - thank goodness no cracks!

His eyes gave a chuckle; His smile was merry, Maybe this was James? Nah – it really seemed like Jerry.

A droll little mouth made them think it was Randy The whole bizarre situation – was really quite dandy!

He placed the counter down and revealed a little round belly It shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly:

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, Morgan laughed when she saw him in spite of herself;

A wink of his eye and a twist of his head Soon gave them to know they had nothing to dread.


He spoke not a word and went straight to more work, He put some candy in the stockings and did a little twerk


He went back out the window when done with his dancing

To an unheard beat, the deer were also prancing

He sprung to that sleigh and gave a thumbs up

Then the whole festive vision went up, Up, UP


They swear they heard him holler, as he flew out of sight- Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
