‘Twas The Night Before Christmas – Shauna

‘Twas The Night Before Christmas by Shauna Jones-Meehan


‘Twas the night before Christmas,

Where the candles were lit

And the music did play

But tonight would be such a hit

Where a mountain of bodies did lay


There was a knock at the door

3 men dressed in black

They asked if they could have help

Then they pulled out a sack

To which there was a yelp


The door slammed and the lock clicked

There was no escape

The candles blew out

All could be heard was a scrape

What was this all about


Then a sound of sharpening knives

What could all this mean

One quick slice

Then the knife was wiped clean

The room felt like ice



Another slice and groan

Something fell down

Everything was so dark

Where was the rest of the town

Even the dog dare not bark


The time had come

This was the last

The town was no more

All the blood had been splashed

As they closed the door


Christmas was never to be

No one got to see the dawn

The flames gone out

They would never live on

Death was here there was no doubt.


T’was the night before Christmas.
