    A Christmas Poem for Fencers

    Merry Christmas,
    Be of Good Cheer,
    The Board is Boiling with Meade and Beer,

    We Blaste away the season,
    We storm upon the Strip,
    and Gather thee the Rainbows,
    Upon the New Years Grip.

    Snow Falls upon Eastern Fencers,
    It rains upon the South,
    Wind swept desert sands Acost Nevada,
    whilst Palm trees heavy with the dew of lava,
    boil upon the shining faces of the Pacific fencer,

    It matters not!
    around the world
    As fencers don their apparel,
    That Fencing and Christmas,
    And Pine-cones and Folly
    all follow, all follow in good Cheer.

    Harken, ye,
    Harken to the call for order in the Salle,
    The season of Glitter and Gold,
    of Red and Green
    Bows and Silver,
    and perchance, if all is well,
    We shall ring in the New Year.

    The European Continent,
    Resplendent in their Stuff,
    Flash their swords and leer,
    as those in the New World,
    Huddled over furnises,
    Prepare for their meager fare.

    I've never been any good at interpreting poetry, but methink's it's not just me this time.
    It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag. - Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC

    Um, repeating it doesn't make it get any better....

    Tell you what though, I'll go home and shake up a few martini's and see if I can set it to music. I'm thinking either "Old Macdonald" or maybe "Dust in the wind"- Kansas
