'Twas the Ride Before Christmas

Twas the Ride Before Christmas: A Motorcycle Christmas Story

'Twas the night before Christmas
and I went on a ride.
No creatures were stirring,
myself set aside.  
The cold winter night
was crisp and was clear.
No cagers, road ragers,
or traffic to hear.
Just me and my bike,
and the road I was on.
I opened that throttle,
with a roar I was gone. 
The moon was out full,
and the stars they were bright.
I picked some great pavement
for my ride on that night.
When all of the sudden,
what was that I just saw?
I stopped my bike hard
and just stood there in awe.
Sure enough, it was Santa.
He was clear, and not hazy.
This couldn’t be real.
This is so crazy!
The legit dude in red
rode a hog through the air!
I rubbed my eyes twice,
but still, he was there.
“HO HO!” he laughed loudly.
On the ground, I could hear,
“You see my new bike
instead of reindeer?
The elves made a point,
That the old way was lame.
Adding some horsepower
upped me and my game!”
“I have gifts for you, brother,”
he grinned as he said.
“Not toys, but I got you
some cool stuff instead.”
He parked down beside me,
and then with a smile,
Opened up his big bag
and dug around for awhile.
Then, in a flash,
he pulled out my loot.
An awesome new lid that
matched with my scoot!
“Wow, thank you Santa!”
It’s all I could say!
He gave me the wave
and went on his way.
I stood there in shock
for a little while more.
He rose in the air
and took off with a roar.
I heard his voice clear
as he flew out of town,
“Merry Christmas to all,
and dirty side down!”

Merry Christmas, everyone!
