Twas the Night Before Christmas: Gamer’s Version

Twas the Night Before Christmas, and all through the house

Were the sounds of gaming consoles, and the clicking of  mouse

My children were nestled all snug in their bed

Which meant violent video games soon could be played

My wife went to bed early so you know what that means

I sat down with a controller and turned on the TV

After pwning some noobs in the latest death match

And playing some single player after downloading a patch

As I was slaying a boss had him flashing and red

A thump from the fireplace had me turning my head

There was ol’ Santa dusting off all the soot

and with two kicks of his feet threw off his boots

He leapt over the couch and as I stared in amazement

Produced a custom controller said “Player Two me, let’s do this”

His headshots how accurate, his melee how gory

His skills in drifting with blue sparks the stuff of legend and story

He had a gaming face that was jolly and wholesome

His tongue all stuck out in concentration while focused

After several sessions he looked at his watch and he plainly announced

It’s three hours past Midnight and I have to bounce

He gave me a fist bump and started to leave

Before snapping his fingers “I almost forgot these”

Out of his bag he produced this year’s best games

From every system and he called them by name

Here’s Halo, Walking Dead , Dark Souls and Journey

Now Xenoblade, Guild Wars 2, Darksiders and Mass Effect 3

Finishing his work he placed a finger aside of his nose

And with a nod of his head up the chimney he rose

In his sled he leapt to his team gave a whistle

And away they all flew like a team-killing missile

But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight

Merry Christmas to all have an awesome game night!
