A Seasonal Poem
by=20
David M. Ocame

Ahem...!

'Twas the night before the night before,
and all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, except for my mouse.
As I scrolled and I pointed and I clicked with alacrity,
Trying to do good for the League de SETI.

When out on the rooftop there arose such a clatter,
I rushed to the window, to see what was the matter.
And there I saw eight tiny raindeer ...and one big fish,
All had conspired to knock over my dish!

I ran to my door and shouted on high,
"Hey! Why don't you look where you're going?"
And then I...

And now, for a short message from our sponsors:

Are you SETILeague members feeling tired, bored or listless this holiday =
season? Are you looking for some extra spark in your life? Well, look no =
more! Simply put fingers to keyboard and send me your nominations for =
the 1999 Bruno Award. There are only a few more shopping days left 'til =
the deadline, so hurry! Don't wait any longer. And don't forget. We =
absolutely must have reasons- a list of your candidates accomplishments =
in the filed of SETI-so we can know why you think that person(s) should =
receive the award.

And just how will this help? (And well you should ask) I'm not really =
sure, but it never hurts to give it a try!

I'll be leaving to join my family for this festive occasion, but I'll be =
back on the 28th of December. And while I'm away, I will be checking my =
e.mail, making my list and checking it twice, so that I can send in the =
best picks for this years' award.

And now back to our show:

And the fish yelled and screamed as it flew away,
"Happy Holidays to all,
And to all a good night!"

(*Hey Paul, this should either get a whole bunch of nominations. Either =
that, or a whole bunch of requests for my resignation - maybe even a few =
to have me committed!:)
