Michelle Barrette

  By Michelle Barrette

   Silent night, holy night; all is calm, all is bright: If you say so!
   Tis the season to cry “folly.”
   Oh come all ye faithful — and stay on one side of the aisle or the other.
   Chestnuts roasting on an open fire — I’ll say!
   Grandma got run over by a donkey — no, I mean an elephant!
   “Rudolph,” the red-faced senator — no, it’s not Rudolph, it’s (insert senator).
   He sees you when you’re sleeping, he knows when you’re awake, he knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! You better watch out, better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why. The IRS is coming for you!
   He’s making a list and checking it twice, gonna find out who’s naughty or nice! The ethics committee is coming for you.
   Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing: Ring ting tingle-ing, too
   Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you — just don’t go with Uber.
   We’ll have a Blue Christmas without you — said a Democrat to a Republican
   Deck the halls with all their money — said a Republican to a Democrat
   It's the most wonderful time of the year, with the kids jingle belling and the adults all yelling, “Please, someone get me a beer.”
   There'll be parties for hosting, politicians for roasting and KIm Jong-un getting ready to blow.
   There'll be scary world stories and tales of glories of an America of long ago.
   Just a bit of humor for you this Christmas season. Enjoy our December issue, have a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukah, a Merry Winter Solstice and if I’ve left anyone out —- Happy Holidays!
   We’ll be back with the NFH’s 15th volume, first issue on Jan. 6. It’s our annual health and wellness issue.
   See you in January 2018!
   - Michelle
   Correction: In the October issue of The New Falcon Herald, an article in Business Briefs referred to the High Prairie Library and the High Plains Library. The correct name is High Prairie Library. Sorry we missed that!
