The night b4 Christmas, MMA style

Stylistic leaning toward Ezra Pound and E.E. Cummings.

The Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas,
when all through the house
not a creature was stirring, except K. Kasem’s blouse
The rash guards were hung by the chimney with care
In the hopes that St. MMA soon would there

The fans were nestled, all smug in their beds
While visions of soccer kicks danced in their heads
Big John in his black shirt, and Bruce in his tux
Were there to ensure a good bit of luck

When out on the lawn there arose such a ruckus!
Arlovski hit Tim like vintage Dick Butkus
Away to the window I jumped like a flash
Threw on my four-ouncers, getting ready to bash

Now Ludwig! Now Rizzo! Fujita, and Quinton!
On Tito! On Vitor! On Herring and Rickson!
To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Now get down the chimney, and let’s get ‘em all!

And then, shadow boxing, I heard on the roof
Whispers and footfalls, muscled men in cahoots
Down the chimney came St. MMA, showing a Cro Cop-like sprawl
He was dressed in a sweaty gi, a la UFC 4
“Don’t mind this thing,” he said, "It belongs to Fedor”

He had all the fights, in a big old brown sack
“Once you see these, my man, you will never go back”
Five hundred fights, not a stinker to be had
St. MMA was grinning, and opened the bag

“We’ve got Randy vs. Wandy, not a single Pride work
And just to be hip, I’ll add B.J. and Sherk
No more bad decisions, or delayed pay-per-views
And Jeremy Horn vs. Chuck Liddell II”

And giving me a nod, up the chimney he went
Leaving enough fights, that’d last us through Lent
He sprang to his sleigh, to his boys gave a whistle
And then they took off, like a Patriot missile

But I heard him yell out, in the din of the night
Enjoy it, dear faithful! Them’s some damn good fights!

That is AWESOME!  Merry Christmas to you too JP!
