A CHRISTMAS "KARA"L
by Argonaut

'Twas the night before Christmas at Argonaut's house.
Argo logged off with a click of the mouse.
He'd read all the posts at his favorite site,
And now what to do for the rest of the night?
He straightened the star at the top of his tree
And put on his Christmas with Elvis CD.
Stoking the blaze on the hearth with a log,
He poured some Jack Daniels into his 'nog,
Then settled way back in his comfiest chair
As strains of "Blue Christmas" were filling the air.
Maybe he'd have a late snack by-and-by
(There was leftover turkey, and blueberry pie) --
But for now he leaned back and rested his eyes ...
Then he sat upright again in surprise.
What's that? he wondered. What's going on?
For he clearly heard footsteps out on the lawn.
He strode to the window and, peering outside,
He beheld -- Could it be? His eyes opened wide.
For standing outside in the winter-y cold
Was a beauty whose hair fell in ringlets of gold.
Her cape was bright red -- her miniskirt too --
And her blouse, like her eyes, was a bright shade of blue.
And emblazoned across her superlative chest
Argonaut saw a familiar red "S."
He blinked -- then again -- then he let out a yell,
For he new right away it was KARA ZOR-EL.
He hastened to open the window up wide,
Ignoring the cold he was letting inside.
The damsel leapt up from the snow-covered ground
And in through the window she came in a bound.
She shook a light dusting of snow from her cape
And giggled as Argonaut stood there agape,
Then presented a gift, while curtsying low,
Wrapped in red paper and tied with a bow.
"And now," said the damsel, "I really must go.
I'm flying all over the planet tonight,
Visiting everyone else from that site:
Lfan and Ace -- Dr. Muttonchops, too --
Geek Seven[/i] and Goobers[/i] and Sarge and Marknew!"
With a toss of her head and a wink of her eye
She sprang through the window and into the sky.
And as she flew off Argonaut heard her say
"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! UP, UP AND AWAY!"

Happy holidays to everyone at SWM!
