Twas The Night Before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all 'round the fairway
Not a frisbee was stirring, not even a Stingray;
The discs were all flung at the baskets with care,
In hopes that St. J-Bird soon would be there;

The Ams were nestled all snug near the chains,
While visions of ace runs danced in their brains;
And ma in her t-shirt, and I in my ballcap,
Had just settled down for a pre-tournament nap,

When out on the tee pad there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw out my stash.

The absence of players in the new-fallen snow
Brought regret that I'd thrown my gear down below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a beat up old van, and a six pack of beer.

The little old driver muttered a quiet curse word,
I knew in a moment it must be St. J-Bird.
More accurate than lazers his frisbees they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

"Now, VALKYRIE! now, PANTHER! now, MAGNET and TEEBIRD!
On, COMET! on, CYCLONE! on, COBRA and CHEETAH!
To the very first hole! you dare not to fall!
Now crash the chains! crash the chains! crash the chains all!"

As drivers before the wild blizzard do fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, they taco and die,
So up to the basket the frisbees they flew,
With the van full of discs, and St. J-Bird threw too.

He was certainly no chump, this cranky old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
With a twitch of his eye and a flick of his wrist,
He tossed me an Eagle to put in my fist;

He spoke not a word, with a scratch to his rear,
He filled all the baskets; and drank one more beer,
Then laying his finger aside of his face,
And giving a nod, he slammed home an ace;

He sprang to his van, to his team gave a yell,
And away they all flew like some Banshees from hell.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he hyzered from sight,
"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD FLIGHT!"
