Twas the night before CM-mas and all through the bunker
not a 'truppen was stirring they were all down and hunkered

The frags were all hung by the rifles with care
In hopes that Santa Steve soon would be there

The 'truppen a snoring and dreaming away
of the hookers they'd met, on leave last May

When out in the minefield there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bunk, my skivvies all tattered.

Away to the gun sites I flew like a plane,
pulled back the bolt and steadied my aim.

When from mod weary eyes I spied from afar,
Some northern Maine dude with a brain in a jar,

Santa Steve! I shouted with excitement and glee
but in response, just some bitching about TO&E

On Stragglers, on Sicherungs, Luftwaffe and Herr
on Jagers and Gebirs, and others more rare

He droned on and on as the brain kept a coding
and I knew deep inside this was no normal foreboding

For once in a while a reference to Syria
and with that little gem I was sent to hysteria

For amidst all that heavy WWII talking
Toward Shock Force 2 I knew he was walking

Patiently on the desert I'd waited
and soon it'd be real and my lust would be sated

Back to the sand! Nato, Uncons and pals
but with 4.0 flare and friggin' hit decals!

My head filled with war and the toys that it brings
I was hoping I'd see it before G**D*** spring!

Then brain in arm, he turned toward the west
to continue ever onward the Combat Mission quest

Teeth clenched and jaw set against the snowy wind
he trudge into the night, a phantom again

And as he passed by the bunker and out of our zone
I chewed on the annual Christmas bone.

 

Merry Christmas, fellas!


Mord.

Hey good buddy, Merry Christmas to you too and all the CM lovers here and everywhere! I'd congratulate you on your hilarious rendition of "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", but I thought we collectively chained you to your computer to hurry up and finish your FB mod?!?!

That was extremely entertaining.

Thanks. I am hoping to get a pic added to the first post to better illustrate the Christmas-iness of this holiday spectacular.
