Murdo Girl…Twas the night before Christmas??


2-IMG_0982Twas the night before Christmas and all through Brick House

There was only one stirring in the cold, old school house

Outside the snow was piled belly- high to a mule

And the heat wasn’t working cause they ran out of fuel

Lav put on her coat and without even a peep

Let herself out to go hot-wire the Jeep.

She would go and get firewood. A fire should help some

Though she didn’t know it, her idea was real dumb

She put pedal to metal like you would in a race

Too bad in the Brick House there is no fireplace

“We ALL have pneumonia!” The Town Crier cried

“Donate some fuel or we’ll die!” TC lied

Even though her idea was surely no winner

You can hate the sin, but still love the sinner

MG, at the truck stop warming up in the shower

knew the Brick House would soon be without power

They couldn’t pay the electricity bill..

With a heavy heart, she walked back up the hill

Jerry’s job isn’t as easy as it looks

You can cook the beans, but you can’t cook the books

No beans for electricity, no beans for the fuel

On the Eve of Christmas, the world sure seemed cruel

Pico went to Beckwith’s to sell her gold locket

To Brick House the dollars. The change she will pocket

DM,ย the defense monitor, was very perplexed

without power or fuel, what would be next?

His job was to keep the Brick House from danger

What they all needed was a real game changer

The Aggressive Informant, also known as A I

Was really depressed cause she couldn’t spy.

She had to keep Air force -1 on the ground

Maybe she should get herself a Blood Hound

Treason thought she’d put an ad in the Coyote

So maybe this story could end on a high note

The ad says, “Come to the Brick House Party this New Years Eve”

It will be 2016 when you get here… 2017 when you leave

Bring a donation, food, drink and a coat

Will you help Next Pres, or will it be all she wrote

When the party is over, there will be people to thank

Then Carol can sing all the way to the bank

It appears our Sherri will be drawing photos all night!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!


It’s Murdo Girl’s BIRTHDAY, so please don’t be late.

She wants you to come so we can all celebrate!


I told her not to take any wooden crowns!!

    Reblogged this on Murdo Girl and commented:

    Rerun from back when the Brick House gang ruled over Murdo from the old High School building.

    Merry Christmas, Mary! No problems with having to keep the fire going in Mexico. Perhaps you should shift locations next Xmas.

    What a fun and clever Christmas poem, Murdo Girl! They are all warmhearted and oh such an interesting bunch. Let’s all have some hot cocoa and celebrate our Brick House friendships.
