‘Twas the night before Christmas

 christmas-banner2014_02
And all through the house
Not a keyboard was stirring
Not even
MightyWrite’s mouse

The stories all flung
by email with care
In hopes
That our server
Would get them all there

The team was now nestled
All safe in our Keds
While visions
of happy clients
Danced in our heads

And MightyWrite our chief
And the team all in caps
Had shut everything down
Then we heard tap, tap

When out from the network
Arose such a clatter
We sprang up with dread
What ever
Was the matter?

Away to our Windows
We flew like a flash
Tore open our Notebooks
Praying nothing
would crash

The moon on the desktops
Created a glow
Gave the lustre
Of stories
That just had to flow

Then what
To our wondering eyes
Should appear
But a fellow in red
Saying ‘Get over here!’

He had more hard drive
So lively and quick
We knew in a moment
This content
Would stick

More rapid than eagles
Our stories they came
As he whistled
And shouted
And promised acclaim

Now Facebook
Now Twitter
Now Google
Now Linkedin.com
On Pinterest
On Gmail
On YouTube
And StumbleUpon

To the top search engines
To the top R0I
Now dash away
Dash away
These ideas must fly

His eyes
How they twinkled
His dimples how merry
He sat down at a laptop
And said
Let’s get share-y

 

His droll little mouth
Was drawn up like a bow
He gave us a look
I’m a writer
You know

The cap of his flash drive
Clenched in his teeth
The words that he wrote
Were tight
Like a wreathe

He had a great wit
Such talent and mirth
His belly it shook
As he showed us
His worth

He spoke not a word
As he polished his work
Filling page after page
Then turning with a jerk

And laying his fingers
Aside from the mouse
He gave us a nod
Taking his leave
From the house

We sprang to the screen
Our team gave a whistle
The beauty
Of his stories
Clear as crystal

We heard him exclaim
As he drove out of site
Happy Christmas to all
And to all a Good Write!

Our gift to you is this wish and a donation we’ve made on behalf of our clients to Siloam Mission.
Wishing you the Wonders of the Season!

    magnificent publish, very informative. I ponder why the opposite specialists of this sector do not realize this.

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you
    recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Kudos, I appreciate it!
