"Twas the night before Christmas at Rock-Away Rest,
and all of us seniors were looking our best.
Our glasses, how sparkly, our wrinkles, how merry:
our punch bowl held prune juice, plus 3 drops of sherry.

A bed sock was taped to each walker, in hope
that Santa would bring us soft candy and soap.
We surely were lucky to be there with friends,
Secure in the residence and in our Depends.

Our grandkids had sent us some Christmassy crafts,
like angels in snowsuits and penquins on rafts.
The dental assistant had borrowed our teeth,
and from them she'd crafted a holiday wreath.

The bedpans, so shiny, all stored in a row,
reflecting our candle's magnificent glow.
Our supper so festive -- the joy wouldn't stop,
Was creamy warm oatmeal with sprinkles on top.

Our salad was Jell-O, so jingly and great,
and then puree of fruitcake was spooned on each plate.
The social director then had us play games,
Like: "Where are you living? and What are your names?".

Old grandfather Looper was feeling his oats,
Proclaiming that reindeer were nothing but goats.
Our resident wanderer was tied to her chair,
in hopes that at bedtime she still would be there.

Security lights on the new fallen snow, made
outdoors seem like nooon, to the old folks below.
then out on the porch there arose quite a clatter,
(but we are so deaf, that it just didn't matter).

A strange little fellow flew in through the door,
then tripped on the sill and fell flat on the floor.
'Twas just our director, all togged out in red,
He jiggled and chuckled and patted each head.

We knew from the way he strutted and jived,
that our Social-Security checks had just then arrived.
We sang -- Oh how we sang -- in our monotone croak,
till the clock tinkled out its soft eight pm stroke.

And soon we were snuggling deep in our beds
while the nurses distributed our nocturnal meds.
And so ends our Christmas at Rock-Away Rest,
'Fore long you'll be with us, we wish you the best.
