That Masked Man

A Christmas Ode ...

Recommended Posts

Ode to Utah Bob

 

'Twas three days before Christmas

and all on the Wire

were at once captivated

by a single desire

 

To see a new Pome

spun in mirth and good cheer

from one of our own

as His birthday drew near

 

And in the Saloon

after many libations,

we chose to press on

with a cheap imitation

 

For tho' our resident Bard

could do a much better job,

a Masked Man stood in

for the stricken Utah Bob:

 

Now let's mix up a cocktail

for a winter night's cheer

or pour some fresh eggnog

or whiskey or beer

 

And to all of our Pards

in the wide world of SASS

raise up and tink

a small toast with your glass

 

For there's many abed,

some are sick, some are ill

and some barely well

thanks to a shot or a pill

 

Let's wish them all Health,

Wealth throughout the New Year

let's wish Warmth and Love

for our pards, and Good Cheer;

 

And tilt back a drink

take a quaff if you like,

savor or gulp it

as suits your delight;

 

But let us remember

each of us the reason

we celebrate heartily

all through this season:

 

There was a swaddling babe

on a cold winter's night

who came forth to bring us

all Wisdom and Light

 

The Wise Men they knew Him

by the Star in the skies

and we today know Him

when we see through His eyes

 

So let's practice forgiveness,

find love and redemption

whenever we're faced

with strife and contention

 

And whether you be in need

or able to lend a hand,

let's lift each other up

all across this great land

 

So if you feel as I do,

thank the Lord for each day -

and the Friends that we meet

along the ol' Cowboy Way -

 

As you set down your glass

call out with all your might,

"Merry Christmas to all,

and to all a good night!"

 

(So I offer this thought

to my pardners in SASS -

Please get well, Utah Bob

in case my poem sucks ass!!)
