“What should we do?” I asked my wife.
At last Tess said, “I know.
I’ll make some snacks, and then we’ll watch
Our favorite Christmas show.”

A Christmas Carol came to life
Upon our TV screen.
The old one with Alastair Sim
As Scrooge, the tight and mean.
We sat entranced by this quaint film
With characters we knew;
Bob Cratchett, Tim, old Marley’s ghost,
And Scrooge’s poor nephew.
