In Which The Holidays Bring Mixed Emotions

It's Christmas Eve and all throughout my house
I've family and doggies underfoot.
Th'exuberance we have nothing could dowse
Not after our Cowboys went down and put
Those Fresno State curs in their place down in
New Mexico. I hope that ev'ryone
Who reads my stuff, who happily has been
Along on this weird sonnet ride's had fun,
And is as fortunate as me tonight.
I pause and think of families who've lost
A dear one, as the Tonnies did, and fight
The urge to cry. All pleasure has a cost,
I guess. But know that whatever you do
Tonight I'm thinking fondly, yes, of you.
