Happy Hogswatch!

... yesyes, and merry Christmas, happy Hanucka (please excuse the spelling) or whatever else you are celebrating these days.

'twas the night before Hogswatch and all through the house
not one creature stirred, especially one mouse:
It hadn't been careful and stepped in a trap,
so it ended it's life with a "squeak!" and a "snap!".

Now all that is left is to meet the Grim Squeaker
Who'll be swinging it's scythe like the ultimate sweeper
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that the Hogfather soon would be there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of liverwurst danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap. (...)
