Christmas Surprise

Christmas Surprise

‘Twas the nightbefore Christmas
and in Second Life’s night
not a creature was stirring –
No avatar in sight.

Every resident missing;
are they out, on the town?
No! They just can’t log in –
the servers are down!

So, taking his chance,
with residents at bay,
Santa called up his reindeer
and jumped on his sleigh.

But you’d have been puzzled
to look in his sack…
It was empty going out,
and full coming back!

For Santa’s not doing his usual chores,
dropping down chimneys, ignoring locked doors.
He not leaving presents under the tree
and eating mince pies, left out by me.

For he has a plan
whilst there’s no-one around –
A new Christmas gift
from which joy will abound.

He opens his sack
and into that bag
he collects unbaked textures,
failed gestures, and lag.

The broken inventories
are inspected with care,
then packed off to the elves
at the workshop for repair.

He gathers together
borked scripts and poseballs,
refreshes their settings
and new contents installs.

He gathers up the tools
used to grief other users
for disposal in his sack…
That’ll teach the abusers!

Then as dawn breaks, on Christmas Day, bright
He looks back on his work and he smiles with delight.
And as we log in and find our world changed,
a broad beam fills his face at the things he’s arranged.

And so Merry Christmas to SL residents,
Father Christmas is hoping you’ll love your presents:
A world that is full of good things, and not bad…
In short: A Second Life, that you’ve never had!
