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 the new 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 apple-crumb 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 knew 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 smiled as Argonaut stood there agape,
Then presented a gift from a pouch in her cape,
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 the site:
Lfan and Fats, GeekSeven and Ace,
Dr. Muttonchops, Random, Anon and Grayface!"
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!

Argonaut

Lovely as ever.
You know Argo, sometimes I have the impression that you spend a awful lot of time to make pieces like this and your Halloween stories.

I don't have a clue how you can write poetry that fits so well with the original (I never have been able to write poetry), but thank you. Merry Christmas to all.

Thank you.

Not so much. I've been posting the Christmas poem year after year with only a few tweaks. And "Zombies in the Endzone" is my one and only Halloween story,though I'm toying with some ideas for a sequel. But first I should get back to the next chapter of "The Supergirl of Smallville."

She used to come visit me about this time too. Not any more, though...























...not since I said I thought she'd look better in the Superman pants rather than a Supergirl skirt. Spent that Christmas Eve trying to remove myself from the top of a very tall tree. Girl's touchy bout the skirt...
