'Twas the Night Before Christmas: A Patch Rewrite
Perry Hall Patch's festive variation on the holiday poem.
'Twas the night before Christmas
Perry Hall was awake
Reading Perry Hall Patch
hoping news would soon break
The website was launched in September with care,
In hopes that great content soon would be there.
Local news could be sketchy, before this website
We hardly could tell if the facts were all right
Mamma loved the newspaper
I thought TV was great
We'd accepted the fact that we'd get our news late.
When in the community, there arose such a buzz
About the new Patch—I had to know what it was.
I asked my close friend, who heard from her sitter
Whose sister's boyfriend had read all about it on Twitter.
So away to my laptop, I flew like a flash
I typed the address, hoping Patch wouldn't crash.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But news, features, events, all happening right here!
With a photo of Emily, the editor, up there on the top
There was lots of great content, it just didn't stop
The events calendar offered lots of fun things to do
Getting married? Why, you could announce that there too.
Contributing writers shared stories and news
And weekly columns to follow, if you so choose.
There's Doug, Tammy and Roni, Stacey and Jenn
Bryan, Jeffrey, Michelle, Nancy and Ken.
Patch promises to keep you informed and updated
If you comment or email, we'd just be elated.
We hope you enjoyed this Christmas poem rewrite
Happy Christmas to all, enjoy reading our site!
