Quoted from "Poems by Marines in Combat" by Nancie Saxton

 

"Twas the night before Christmas and all through the skies,

Air Defences were up, with electronic eyes.

Combat pilots were nestled in ready-room beds,

As enemy silhouettes danced in their heads.

 

Every jet on the apron, each SAM in it's tube,

Was triply-redundant linked to the Blue Cube,

And ELINT and AWACS gave coverage so dense

That nothing that flew could slip through our defense.

 

When out of the klaxon arose such a clatter

I dashed to the screen to see what was the matter;

I dialled up the gain and then quick as a flash

Fine-adjusted the filters to damp out the hash.

 

And there found the source of the warning we'd heeded:

An incoming blip, by eight escorts preceeded.

"Alert status red!" went the word down the wire,

As we gave every system the codes that meant "FIRE"!

 

On Aegis! Up Patriot, Phalanx and Hawk!

And scamble our fighters - let's send the whole flock!

Launch decoys and missiles! Use chaff by the yard!

Get the kitchen sink up! Call the National Guard!

 

They turned toward the target, moved toward it, converged.

Till the tracks on the RADAR all finally merged,

And the sky was lit up with a demonic light,

As the foe became pieces in the high arctic night.

 

So we sent out some recon to look for debris,

Yet all that they found, both on land and on sea,

Were some toys, a red hat, a charred left leather boot,

Broken sleighbells, some gloves, and a ripped parachute.

 

Now it isn't quite Christmas, with Saint Nick shot down.

There are unhappy kids in each village and town.

Can the spirit of Christmas even hope to evade

All the web of defences we've carefully made?

 

Just look at the gadgets we use to protect us

In other ways alter, transform and affect us.

They can keep us from things that make life more worth living,

Like love for each other, and thoughts of just giving.

 

But a crash program's on: Working hard night and day,

All the elves are constructing a RADAR-proof sleigh.

So let's wait for next Christmas, in cheer and in health,

And be good boys and girls, as Santa goes STEALTH"

I can't wait!!! Since then I've had more choccies, more smellies, a dinner service and a new steam iron!!!!! I've done really well this year! Stress levels have been low, cubelets didn't get up till 0630ish. Lunch went well, just thrashed everyone at monopoly empire and squeezed a slice of home made crimbo cake down. Listening to the cubed one snoring away whilst boys sing along silently to headphones!!! Only 35 mins till doctor who!!!!!

There's no answer to that except you and the cubed one obviously had a good time;)
