'Twas the Night Before Christmas (in Durham)

Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through the city,
everything was quite dry,
and that was a pity.

All the citizens implored Santa,
that jolly old elf,
"Please send rain, for we only
have 20 days left."

The moms and the dads, all
snuggled in bed,
dreamed of long, hot showers
and not 2 minute ones instead.

Once Santa arrived,
with his ruby red cheeks,
he installed showerheads, low-flush
toilets, and fixed all the leaks.

And as he departed,
and flew down the lane, he said,
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
and I'LL BE SURE TO SEND RAIN!
