'Twas the Month of Bad Poetry

'Twas the month before Christmas, in all cyberspace
This poem was being abused every place
From new-moms to gaming, blog advice to sports,
Writers and bloggers adapted it for all sorts

Of really bad poetry, trying to be cute
And others then meme'd it, following suit.
Even the media, though usually staid,
Referenced this poem in headlines they made:

"'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the mall"
Farmington's Daily recited with gall
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Iraq
The Huffington huffed on the latest attack

"All through the net", or "All had the flu"
"The stores were all closed", "Through the hotel", too,
"All through the Alps", "the tube" got some space
As did "Ramadaan", and "All through the base"

I'm not the only one tired of this joke
(Here is another quite frustrated bloke)
So please cut it out, and don't be a pest,
It's time that we gave this poem a rest.

Bah Humbug,
