T’was the night before Christmas
Throughout DPR
Music ran through the evening
News updates from NPR

Nine Lessons and Carols
On the classical station
While The Show About….ran
From computer automation

The staff were all nestled with
Loved ones in houses
Or struggling with manuals
Building bikes and dollhouses

The wife and I marveled
At presents gift-wrapped
And began to wind down
For a long winter’s nap
