Holiday gathering & white elephant gift exchange
November 20, 2017
Twas the weeks before finals and all through St. Louis
The cold winter air was blowing right through us.
Now a rhyme, you may think, might be superfluous.
But just grit your teeth, and we’ll get you right through this.
As you read over homework, won’dring, “why can’t these kids spell?”
This bleak winter outlook, can anyone quell?
When all of a sudden, someone let out a yell,
“It’s the holiday party for jSTL!”
Can this be true? Is it a practical joke?
Are you some sort of mad man, like Supreme Leader Snoke?
No, I can tell you, I’m a truth-telling bloke.
We have a new venue. The place: Salt + Smoke.
You can come in a t-shirt, or a sweater of wool.
We know with you there, the night will not be dull.
Thanks for making it through this poetry bull.
If your gift is from Star Wars, it’s for Aaron Manfull.
We hope you can join us, merry and bright,
Your festive attendance will make our night.
When you RSVP, our faces will light,
And remember a gift of an elephant that’s white.
