T'was the night before Christmas
and all though the Corps
and no one had a pass,
the troops were all sore.
<?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = O /><O:P></O:P>
Yes, every Marine was on his back
lying on a rack.

When out on the Parade Deck
I heard such a clatter,
I sprang from my rack
to see what the hell was the matter.
<O:P></O:P>
With bayonet in hand,
I moved stealthily to the door
I cautiously waited to see
if there were more.
<O:P></O:P>
Yes, it was General Hagee
this there was no doubt
he was wearing his poncho
green side out.
<O:P></O:P>
He carefully moved from rack to rack
he cautiously inspected each rifle and pack
to a chosen few a 96 chit
but to the majority a ration of s*it.
<O:P></O:P>
As he pulled away in his Gold Plated Tank
pulled by eight Colonels bucking for rank
I heard him shout,
"Merry Christmas you poor bastards, you'll never get out ! :yes:

One of my fellow communicators had a version like this back in the Christmas of '61. I never forgot about it. I found this version buried deep in Google. If I remember correctly, the version in the '60s was allot longer and had something to do with the 'house mouse' too.

Glad you liked it !
