Twas the night before Christmas

when all through the house

the husband was sent scurrying

pleaded to by his spouse

“We need bananas!” Meghan screamed

For our Christmas Day chocolate chip/banana pancakes

breakfast to be redeemed.

“But no grocery stores are open” I said

I’d have to go somewhere else instead

On empty streets I drove, in the dark of night

with nary an “OPEN” sign in sight!

I visited convenience stores and gas stations

who only provided fruitless frustrations!

Tiredly searching where to get bananas on Christmas Eve?!

A remote Walgreens held my reprieve.

“We have bananas here,” said the clerk truthful

And my Christmas eve became fortuitously fruitful!

So, in Meghan’s stocking hung a most welcome, appeeling sight

Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night!
