Happy holidays to one and all! w00t!

Before I put this up on my blog, The Little Dorama Girl, I thought I'd share it here first. Beaten (To the Mods, please PM me if the poem's too long and I should post an excerpt instead. Thanks!)

(Er, and yes, the dude in the Santa suit is Johnny Kitagawa. Twisted)

Enjoy! Victory! Peace!



by Ender's Girl

eTwas the night before Christmas, when all through Japan
Not a creature was stirring, except for one man:
Prowling the darkened streets with great care,
In hopes that police would not notice him there.

The children were nestled all snug on their mats,
While the moon shone bright through the old bamboo slats.
All warm in their jammies, in wool blankets wrapped,
They drifted to dreamland for a long winterfs nap.

In the yard of one house, on the snow-covered surface,
A dark form descended, a shadowy menace.
Out of the night air it suddfnly appeared:
A miniature sleigh, and eight puny reindeer.

In front sat the driver, so nimble and quick,
Who was none but Johnny, that evil old prick!
Plodding and wheezing, his critters they came,
He whistled so faintly and hissed out their names:

gNow Yabu! Now, Chinen! Now, Hikaru and Yuto!
On, Yamada! On, Daiki! On Ryutaro and Inoo!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Hey! I say jump away all!h

The eight stunted reindeer, dragging their hoofs,
Piteously crawled their way up to the roof.
But out came the whip, and they whickered in fright;
The sleigh rocked and swayed, for its load was but light.

For inside were nought but a few filthy sacks,
All empty for nowc but not on the trip back.
And then, in a twinkling, with nary a sound,
Down the chimney Johnny came with a bound!

He was dressed in rich sable from head to toe,
Hunched and misshapen, like an oversized crow.
A large dirty sack he had flung on one shoulder,
And wherever he crept, the air got a bit colder.

His eyes were black buttons that gleamed in the dark,
And his skin had the texture of moldering bark.
Those cheeks, gray and lumpy, were like Elmer Fuddfs,
But his teeth were small razors, flecked with dried blood.

From the living room, down the hall did he glide,
And stopped at the door with the wee ones inside.
Three boys lay sleeping, aged ten to thirteen,
50-foot robots invading their dreams.

Johnny spoke not a word, but went straight to work:
Bagged the poor lads, then tied the sack with a jerk.
Back out he raced, while hauling his loot,
Before the parents woke and saw what was afoot.

Up through the chimney, to the getaway sleigh,
One crack of his whip \ up, up, and away!
For there was much to do; the night was still young.
Till the sacks were all filled, his job was not done.

Countless boys lay, unsuspecting, in bed,
Oblivious to the horrors that waited ahead.
Old Kitagawa needed more for his collection,
Ergo this multiple moonlight abduction.

His gJuniorsh he called them, but in fact were his thralls.
(Theyfd grow up like eunuchs ecoz he cut off theirc uh, hair.)
But such was their fate, and our sad tale ends here;
Be thankful you were spared, and I wish you good cheer.

THE END

I dont know the scale. I size things by eye. I have a good memory for that kind of thing.

That wiki article was interesting. Victory! Peace!

I guess you can get a rough estimate of the scale by comparing the height of one of the villagers to that of a real person.

So if an adult male villager is say, 2 inches, and a real male person is six feet tall (72 inches), the scale would be 1:36... Victory! Peace!
