"An Island School Christmas" by Caciques Aldis and Lindsey
Mail arrived yesterday and for faculty and students alike, it felt as if Christmas had come early. Drawing near the fishbowl, where the mail was being distributed, the excitement was palpable. Watching students open their packages and letters, these famous lines sprang to mind:
‘Twas the morning before mail arrived and all through the school
Not a creature was stirring not even David Miller.
The fishbowl was cleaned by the chore crew with care,
In hopes that the mail soon would be there.
The students were nestled all snug in their bunks,
While visions of letters danced through their heads.
And me in my T-shirt, and Ma in her flip flops,
Had just settled down for a long Sunday breakfast.
When out on the fishbowl I heard such a clatter
I dashed to the dinning hall to see what was the matter.
When what to my wondering eye should appear,
But one giant box and a crowd closing near.
With a little old Jason so lovely and dear
I knew in a moment that mail must be here...
