Dial-Up Land’s the place to be
With gifts beneath “O Christmas Tree.”
And such delights a break shall bring
Tho’ it disrupts this blogging thing.
No fear, fair readers, I’ll return to thee.
Count four days and four nights, too
A holiday, yes, but much to do.
Perhaps a post will find its way
Hope if you like but please don’t pray
For topics funny, noteworthy and true
Will the Pope be attacked this year?
For stolen dolls, did you shed a tear?
Will some writer again announce
Those things we atheists denounce?
Or new disasters spreading fear?
No news is good news as they say
But bad for bloggers every day
While one might wish the world could rest,
Then what new knowledge would I have to test
When next you pass my way?
