A Christmas Story...or, How Ralph Saved Our Christmas

Twas a few weeks before Christmas, and all through the office The staff were excited about the season upon us

Ralph was in the attic, getting boxes of decorations We were downstairs making all the preparations

So down came the tree, the wreaths and the bows The nutcrackers, the garlands and lights - rows and rows

But upon opening the boxes, we found with disgust Something had been feasting on our baubles with lust

The wreaths were all ragged, the garlands were matted The bows were undone and the string lights were shattered

The smell was horrendous but much worse than that Emerging from the tree box, was a huge, ugly rat!

The girls screamed and scattered and jumped on the desks While Ralph kept his calm and went in search of a net

The rat took off running with Ralph close behind Like a seasoned game hunter, he was not feeling kind

He cornered the rat and came in for the kill While we watched in amazement at his cunning and skill

He pounced on the rat and grabbed onto its tail Yelling, "I am a hunter ...... I will prevail!!"

So Ralph saved that Christmas and for each year thereafter We re-tell the story whil howling with laughter

We never want a repeat of that fateful day But it's a great story to tell...... to new staff anyway

Of the day Ralph saved Christmas and let us be merry

And as we celebrate this year...... Merry Christmas from Berry!
