No Butts About It

There’s a part of me
I cannot see
But from what I’ve heard
I should let it be

The 12 Nights of Krampus -- Work in Progress for Holidays 2018



I'll be fleshing this out over the next few months. Look out for updates (and be good, for goodness sake)!

On the [X] night of Krampus, my true love screamed to me:
1 There’s something out in the street!
Evil eyes!!
3 Creepers laughing!!!
4 Squirmy worms!!!
5 Ghoulish fiends!
6 Beasties playing!
7 Horns a blaring!
8 Windows breaking!
9 Grabbers grabbing!
10 Hordes a-leaping!
11 Biters biting!
12 Mumblers mumbling!

Two Kids

There once were two kids, their names Work and Play.
But their names would be different every day.

One was the fun one, the other a chore.
But the roles would reverse from what came before.

This day to that, and the day after that, one kid was a joy, while the other a brat.

Pointy nose, hairless tail, clumsy with acorns, and bad at climbing -- Fluffless is the worst squirrel in the park. 
But he is determined to keep up with the others -- all the way up, up, up, to the top of the great oak tree! 
But a couple of spectators down below cast doubt on his efforts and leave Fluffless thinking maybe he really is just nuts.

The latest from Matt Bergin ("Blank Slater, the Boy With the Dry-Erase Face," "Lesky Lee, Monster of Monsters") is a twist 

on "The Ugly Duckling," where the scruffy protagonist doesn't even realize how much he has to learn about himself.
