A Mad Trio night before Christmasthe mad trio Chrismtas!
It was Christmas and all through the house! Three creatures were a stirring!
Sorrow the Hatter.
Maddie the Hare.
And Dormy the Doormouse.
All were there.
And yes they arose to see what was the matter! But this mad trio did not hear a clatter! For how could they when, at this untimely hour, they were the ones that was what's the matter.
Sorrow was hyper as ever she'd been. March was mad, she got forks instead of spoons for chrismtas, again. Dormy couldn't complain. He wasn't very vein. The sleep he finally had didn't seem a gift that was all that bad.
But the noise was so loud that it woke all the neighboring dreamers and sleepers from their sugar plum fairies and nightly naughty list peepers.

but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
