Christmas on the Sol
CHRISTMAS ON THE SOL
T'was the night before Christmas and all through the ship
All we could hear were the instruments blip.
The night crew was settled for a long quiet shift
Reading reports coming in from the rift.
Then the Com station chimed with such a clatter
The XO leaped up to resolve the matter.
"On screen!" she ordered and what did we see:
A red Bird of Prey with warp nacelles three!
"Intruder Alert!" The computer declared
As an energy beam appeared from nowhere.
A very round Klingon over 2 meters high
Appeared in red armour of a Samauri!
His smokey brows met under eyes steely blue,
Offsetting his ridgeplate: a gnarled horseshoe.
His beard was streaked white from the passage of time
And his deep-throated chuckle sent chills down my spine!
He held a skin bag filled to the brim,
Which he dumped on the station in front of him.
Disruptors and Batleths, Candy and gargh,
a new baby Targ, a Horta egg, too
All graced the bridge when Kahless was through.
He shouldered his pack and started to gleam,
Then he faded away in the wash of a beam.
His form disappearing, I heard his farewell:
"Merry Christmas to all and to all....DIE WELL!"
