It's The Day Before Christmas

It's the day before Christmas
And all through the house
BZ's cat Iggy
Is scared of a mouse
He came from a dumpster
His life's not been easy
He's frightened of everyone
Except maybe Beezie
He won't let you touch him
He's not into lapping
He runs when he's startled
Even when crapping
But he likes to play
With his bell and his feather
And he likes his pillow
When we're all together
Now Ma in her kerchief
And Pa in his scarf
And watch cap and parka
Like an oversized dwarf
Have covered their bodies
With woolens and fleeces
And mufflers and mittens
On this day before Jesus
Was born in a manger
Back in the day
And if he had a kitten
No one can say
But I say to sweet Iggy
Just trust in the Beezer.
Her lap is the warmest
You can't help but please her.
Great love, if it's worthy
Sometimes takes years.
Merry Christmas to All
And a scratch on the ears.

"Great love, if it's worthy, sometimes takes years." What a line.
