A cracking Christmas song

`Twas the day before Christmas and all had McCroned.

"It's an honourable contract," the rep had intoned.

The heidie sat, Glenmorangie in hand,

In the hope that Mike Russell would at least understand.

Two years to go and then the lump sum,

Of solace and comfort it was but a crumb.

The dominie nestled all snug in his bed,

While visions of turbulence danced in his head.
