Christmas tradition has Chuck sending out his Christmas Pfennig on Christmas Eve.. And So, to keep the tradition going, which, as you’ve been informed from Chuck, is a Big deal with him! So, with no further ado, here’s Christmas 2021, A Pfennig Tale..
T’was the night before Christmas
And all across the states
Not a creature was stirring
But inflation was calling Check Mate!
And mama in her kerchief
And I in my cap
Had just settled down
To a long winter’s nap…
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter
And what to my wondering eye did appear
But a sleigh full of inflation and 8 Fed heads, oh dear!
With an informer of the inflation so lively and full of luck…
I knew in a moment it must be St. Chuck!
He whistled and shouted to his team…
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall
Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!
St. Chuck shimmies down the chimney
And comes down with a thud!
And went straight to work
Filling the stockings with Gold
In his sack he has many Gold & Silver coins
But the people of this country are fickle
And they don’t want real money
They’d rather have things not worth a pickle!
He thinks of leaving the non-believers coal in their stockings
For at least it would heat their homes
Which would be better than their fake money, I’m sure
All those things that won’t be worth a bag of foam…
But, it’s Christmas, Chuck…
It’s time to ask for dolls and trucks!
Do kids still ask for those things?
Or, is it all about the bling?
So, reluctantly he gives out gifts that will bring gratification
Knowing all the while that they won’t last
Not like Gold, or Silver
Then turned around and with a finger beside his nose
Up the chimney he rose…
He left behind many presents for his Grandchildren to enjoy
And he hopes they like every little and big toy!
He climbs in his sleigh, and whistles and calls his team by name!
On. Delaney, Everett, Braden and Evie
You 4 will make the world better some day!
But he worries every single day
That the country’s debt clock is being abused
And that it will all come crashing down
Some very fine day…
He has left presents for his family
Friends, and dear readers
There’s no one else on his list
So, I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!
Chuck Butler, Christmas 2021
