'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the White House

Not a creature was stirring, except George Bush and his spouse

For George dared not sleep, the nightmares would come

with sounds of the people beating the anti-war drums

Cheney and Rummy and John Ashcroft too

Were twisting and turning, haunted by what they knew

With visions of deception, corruption and ill-doings abound

Something was stopping them from a sleep so sound

When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter

From their beds quickly they did scatter

They tossed on their robes and guns they did grab

Just in case it was a disgruntled Arab

Instead on the lawn they could not believe their eyes

There were thousands of people, all shapes and all size

From near and far they were all gathered there

Certainly such a sight indeed was so rare

They turned to George with fear they did feel

"Stop them this instant! Make them a deal!"

But George was frozen in fear as well

This was nightmare straight from hell

People from Iraq, Iran, North Korea and Pakistan

Saudi, Taiwan, Venezuela and Afghanistan

Columbia, Cuba, Egypt and Syria too

All stood right there to give George his due

"Mr. President" they all yelled in chorus

Come out here and stand before us!

For we have gathered together to put an end to you

And bring Rumsfield, Ashcroft and Dick Cheney too!"

"For the time has arrived on this cold winter's night

For you to determine a good reason not to fight

For it is war that you hunger, it is war you shall receive

Come stand before us and no longer deceive!"

George stood at the window, not sure what to do

For this was certainly a dream and could not be true

He called for the military to come to his aid

only to find there was none because they had not been paid

"How could this happen Dick?" cried George with a sob

"What have we done to create such a mob?"

Dick looked at George with disbelieving eyes

Has he come to believe his very own lies?

All of a sudden, a sound came so loud and so clear

It was the sound of Santa and his eight tiny reindeer

With a hearty laugh and a jolly Ho! Ho! Ho!

Santa proceed to tell them what they needed to know

"The people out there are angry as hell

and the causes are something you all know too well

To lie, to deceive, to bomb on a whim

Your chances for survival at this point looks slim"

"But you do have to power to make this go away

and I shall help you before I head off in my sleigh"

And with a wink of his eye and a twist of his head

George, Dick, Donald and John had a feeling of dread

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

while George looked on not daring to smirk

and into his bag Santa did reach

And handed George an order for an instant impeach

Cheney, Ashcroft and Rumsfield started to whine

When Santa gave them agreements to resign

Out George! Out Dick! Out Donald and John!

Let the People know that you will be gone!

And from the world there rose such a cheer

And from George's eye there fell a sad tear

And Santa smiled as he flew out of sight

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!
