A Happiest Hour Holiday Tale

(with apologies to Clement Clarke Moore)

‘Twas three weeks before Christmas, and all through The Yard,
Every AD was stirring – they party so hard!
The Web Devs all hung ‘round HR’s open door,
In hopes that a bonus would be theirs to score.
Designers were nestled, all snug in their cubes,
While secretly watching 8 hours of YouTube!
And Brigette in her fun heels and I in my boots,
Had just settled down for, oh, one or two schnoots,
When out on 6th Street there arose such a clatter,
We sprang to our feet to see what was the matter . . .
