The stockings were hung by the boardroom with care,
In hopes that #TeamHappiness would soon would be there;
The designers were nestled all snug in their beds;
While visions of press ads danced in their heads;
Mark Irwin was at home, dusting off his old hockey cap,
While Account Handlers were taking, a well deserved nap,
When out in the carpark, there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
I rubbed at my eyes to see what was below,
A handful of elves, all lined in a row
When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
But decorations, trees and bags full of cheer.
They moved at a pace, so lively and quick,
I actually thought they were taking the mick!
They brought in a cracker, some lights and a tree,
Chocolate and music full of Christmas time glee.
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
They brought Christmas spirit to it all!
But with a slip of the tongue I gave out a cry,
I got too excited and spotted was I!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Andy gave me a nod, I had nothing to dread;
They spoke not a word when returning to work,
They’d filled all the stockings; a true office perk!
