“Luna, what the hell are you doing?”

“Playing with these stupid dolls.”

“Those aren’t dolls. That’s a nativity scene now put everything back the way you found it.”

“Whatever. There you go.”

“That’s not even close, little missy.”

“I don’t remember how they went!”

“Fine, I’ll help you. Where’s the baby Jesus?”

“You mean this little guy?”

“Luna, what was he doing in your purse?”

“Kids are good for ransom money. So I hear.”

“You’ve been hanging out with Asa too much. Where’s the virgin Mary?”

“Right here.”

“Luna, untie her! You’ve definitely been hanging out with Asa too much. That’s better now put her next to Joseph.”


“Joseph, dammit!”

“Settle down. You’re losing your holiday spirit.”

“Put her beside him please, not on top.”

“This is boring.”

“Just give it here. There, that’s how you set up a proper nativity, Luna. Now let’s get out of here before someone sees us.”

“You’re no fun. Hey, why don’t we have a nativity scene at our place!”

“Due to some very smart thinking on someone’s part, Luna. That’s why.”

The Chair

Alex to Michael:

“What on earth is that?”

“Luna made it in wood shop. She gave it to me for christmas.”

“Okay but what the hell is it.”

“According to her, a chair.”

“Oh my.”

“Yes, I know.”

“It doesn’t look comfortable.”

“Not unless you’re into that kind of thing.”

“Bless her heart for trying.”

“She made you one too.”

Michael to Luna: 

“Come here and take off that silly hat. What did you do all day?”


“I can believe it. What’s for dinner?”


“You forgot to make something, didn’t you.”

“No. I planned on candy.”

“Dammit Luna! I’m hungry.”

“Want a cupcake?”

“Give it here, so I can squish it in your face.”

“No, sheesh! That’s not very nice.”

“Don’t eat the cupcake.”


“You’re not supposed to have sweets before dinner.”

“Oh wow, someone’s not listening.”

“Give it here!”

“Hey! Give that back.”


“Bon appetit.”

The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
No one could sleep because Luna was soused.

Her stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
Along with some of her underwear.

While most other children were snug in their bed,
Luna was up causing trouble instead.

Ma in her kerchief and me in my cap,
We locked the door in case she attacked.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
Oh dear god, it’s her with a ladder.

So away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.

The moon on her breasts that were covered in snow,
Had me transfixed on the objects below.

Then what to my wondering eyes did appear,
The lights of a Jaguar speeding near.

With an angry driver, so livid and pissed,
Under my breath I whispered, oh shit.

Like a rabid dog, the wicked man came.
He whistled and shouted and called Luna names.

God dammit, stop dancing and prancing  you vixen!
Come here you psycho, problematic and blitzed one.

But to the top of the porch, to the top of the wall,
She dashed and she flashed her ass for yea all.

As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
Her skirt went airborne in the windy night sky.

Up to the rooftop the little one flew,
She kicked down the ladder and laughed at the dude.

Then in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
The familiar click of her high heeled shoes.

As I drew in my head and was turning around,
Down the chimney Luna came with a bound.

She was dressed in furs from head to foot,
And her clothes were tarnished with ashes and soot.

The bag full of liquor she flung on her back,
Was all for her, I found that out fast.

Her eyes how they twinkled, her dimples how merry.
Her cheeks were filled with cocktail cherries.

On top of her head was a cute little bow,
To hide the horns that were growing below.

The stump of a pipe she held in her teeth,
It made her cough so she set down her weed.

She had a nice rack and showed off her belly,
She bounced around and it woke up my willy.

Chubby and plump this horny old elf,
Started to drool in spite of myself.

With a wink of an eye and a tilt of her head,
She subtly stole my last bottle of red.

She spoke not a word but went straight to work,
Stealing more things like my pants and my shirt.

Laying her finger to the side of her nose,
She gave a nod and up the chimney she rose.

She sprang to a tree and to the jerk gave a whistle.
He wrestled her down with the charm of a thistle.

Then I heard her exclaim as they drove out of sight.
Merry Christmas to me and to me all a good night.
