It’s a Monster Mash !

Twas the weekend before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.

When out from Brislington there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
the Lads down at B-I-G were hosting a Monster Mash.
