Twas the day before Christmas and all through this house
Creatures were stirring, though lack of a mouse
Made this blogger type away on an interface where
He could link nothing, for the option wasn’t there.
The stockings were laid by the tree with care
For there was no chimney for Santa, so there!
Packing for travels for the day after,
I wondered what I should take, with laughter.
(Because I cannot make links here go live,
Look for some movies under the Movie Review Archive)
Some David Lynch with Mulholland Dr.,
Going for something for a bit more jive
By working on the sync proposed by yours truly
With “Dark Side of the Moon”, which may be unruly;
The Right Stuff and Braveheart along for the ride,
Some three hour movies that I can abide;
2001: A Space Odyssey is a must on the road
For it provides me with an analytical load;
Then some other goodies that may be here tomorrow
Personal copies of films others may borrow
When I see them again when the semester begins
But until then, each addition wins.
I may not have followed the usual form
Of a holiday poem, following the norm
But I did my best and this is your gift
To give your Yuletide spirits a lift.
So until then I bid you all glad tidings
And I will end this poem with tidings.
