It’s the night before SLANmas
And all through the ‘course
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a horse
Not a cable was creeping,
No switch made a purr,
No corks were a-popping,
No screams about Blur
Then the following morning,
With a flash and a blare
Arrive several helpers
Holding tables and chairs!
In strides their leader,
to whoops and to cheers,
It’s Father Wizzo, yelling proudly:
“Let there be beer!”
