GS Christmas Poem - 2015!

Hello, fellow Gunslingers!

As all of you who have been here at least a year know, each year I write a Christmas poem and gift it to all Gunslingers. It's a small thing to do for a group that means a lot to me personally. It's also hard to believe that this year's poem is my 4th Annual GS Christmas Gift Poem! Four years has gone by really quick. (Scroll down a little here on the Creative Corner forum to see the poems from the previous years.)

To bring you up to speed on the story, ever since McMurphy - our fearless leader - caught a glimpse of Santa Clause at his house 4 years ago, he's been recruiting fellow GS Leaders and Admins. to come up with new and creative ways to try and see Santa again each Christmas Eve. So far, he and the guys have been unsuccessful in their attempts, much to Murph's frustration! (For the exact details of these past episodes, you'll have to read the poems yourself!)

For whatever reason, the idea for this year's episode struck me early, so I was able to finish it WAY before Christmas and decided to go ahead and post it here. Keep reading to find out who Murph has recruited to help him this Christmas and how the story plays out! To view and download a .pdf version of the poem with graphics, visit the GS page on my writing website, here: http://sticklerswordworld.weebly.com/cr ... iting.html.

Merry Christmas (early!), fellow Gunslingers! I hope you enjoy the story!
- C U out there!

“Christmas Eve at the Gunslinger’s Place”

‘Twas the night before Christmas, at the Gunslinger’s place;
Concern was etched deeply, on Murph’s anxious face.

Balki said, “Man, this plan is clean-”
“What better way to catch Santa, than on a Twitch livestream?”

Merky Water was sure, Balki’s plan was foolproof,
Flashing thumbs up he smiled, “Soon as hooves hit the roof!”

Murph reassured, He rose from his chair;
“Gunslingers, we’ll see Santa this year, I swear!”

Murph checked the camera, Merky, the feed;
Balki hit the chat typing, “Time for the deed!”

Dry desert winds, started to howl;
Like Nightmares in Dying Light, on nightly prowl.

Then, sounds of chopper blades, soon met their ears;
Alerted them Santa, surely was near!

Up on the rooftop, they heard a loud sound;
Balki entered in chat, “Santa – inbound!”

Next - “clang” sounds; One. Two. Three.
Twitch stream crashing, Murph mouthed - astonished, “EMP. . .”

Santa slid down the chimney, Stealth Boy engaged;
While the three frantic ‘Slingers, vexed looks exchanged.

He slid down the chimney, evading the three;
Stealth mode engaged, he stashed gifts by the tree.

On T-45 armor, painted red as a bow;
A symbol that read, “Property of: Polar Weapons Depot.”

He was chubby and plump, that jolly fat man;
Santa filled stockings, foiling the Gunslinger plan!

With practiced movements, so nimble and quick;
He finished his task, not missing a trick.

Adjusting his helmet, up the chimney he rose;
He climbed in his ‘Copter, and slammed the door closed.

Their livestream forgotten, ‘Slingers burst through the door;
When, once outside, their ears met a roar!

A Chopper took off, the pilot – an elf;
McMurphy yelled out, in spite of himself.

“Santa, come back!” he yelled - no avail;
The ‘Copter veered north, dust clouds - its trail.

And they heard him exclaim, as he flew out of sight,
“Happy Christmas, Gunslingers! And to all, a Good Night!”

Thanks, Merk!

Lol! Yep! Oh well, maybe Murph and his merry band of Gunslingers will find a way to see Santa next year . . . who knows!

Make sure to download one of the .pdf versions with the graphics for being a good sport and all, Lol! A souvenir for you.
