My Christmas eMail
This poem was first written on Christmas Eve, 1975 - really!
This is the Christmas 2002 version
Not a creature was stirring, except for my mouse
My wife she awoke to ask what was the matter
'Twas not Santa Claus, 'twas my keyboard clatter
One would think that my friends would all be fast asleep
But why does my email go click-click and beep-beep?
'Cause elsewhere in the world it's tomorrow already
And my flood of email comes strong, fast and steady
My eNews buddys are browsing and leaping
They still cruise the Web while others are sleeping
With most people in bed, all cozy and curled
Our eNews goes click-click and changes the world
While the old fashioned types still send their regards
By snail-mail with postage and hard-copy Christmas-cards
My cyberspace friends simply copy and paste
Their cute email greetings, just in time with no waste
I type "Froehliche Weihnachten" for my German friends
My "Feliz Navidad" Spanish greetings extends
And my English buddies get a "Chin-chin old chap!"
"Put a shrimp on the barbie!" is my Down-under rap
While my wife sends her few cards with stamps and lick-lick
I send off four thousand email cards with a click
The answers come back at almost speed of light
Thatís what makes my email go beep-beep in the night
But please cyber friends, donít email too much
Don't just have a virtual Christmas - go touch!
I wish you all a good time and good cheer
To all a good Christmas! And a Happy New Year!
