Christmas at the 'Stute

Christmas at the 'stute
is no fun in this suit
that's so white and which ties in the back.
There's this blue Christmas tree
bue as far as I see
there's no presents piled in no stack!
The lights overhead
stay on when we're in bed
'cause the guards want to make sure we're there.
And the music piped in
sounds indeed really grim....
there's no carols sung  here anywhere!

I called all my bro's,
but the way that it goes,
not a one came to visit at all.
My twin, Justin Kace,
is here with me to face
this darn Christmas behind this steel wall!
On the day before last
Thanksgiving had past
and we knew Christmas was coming soon.
We all gathered around
the drab dull piped in sound
and decided we'd sing Christmas tunes!

I sang "Jingle Bell Rock"
'til the thyme on the clock
was a little bit past half past one.
But before that I finished,
my voice was diminished
when Nurse Cratchet told me, "You are done!"
There then was a riot,
when others did try it,
they started to sing carols LOUD!
They harmonized sweetly
and almost completely
drowned Cratchet's voice out, then they bowed!

Nurse Cratchet broke loose
from the crowd and then Moose,
quickly tackled her down to the floor.
He said, "Listen, sweetie,
don't make me repeatie...
We'll sing all we like, then sing more!"
Sylvester, the kitty
sang soft a sweet ditty
and Elmer Fudd soon harmonized.
Then 3 other Justins,
and all of them, cousins,
joined in and the crowd hypnotized!

Rockwell took his brush
and he painted the tush
of ol' Cratchet while Moose held her down.
Then all hell broke loose
as the nurse hit Doc Moose
and his elbow slammed into my gown!
Perhaps a roommate
or someone sedate,
can tell more why this Christmas did flop!
'Cause, needless to say
I was right in the way
and the Looney 'Toon's tumbled on top!

Now all that I know
is it was quite a blow
to get knocked on my ass at the 'stute
when we were just tryin'
to keep Christmas from dyin'
and sing carols that were mighty cute!
Is there stuff you remember
'bout the 'stute this December?
Then write it here, please fill me in!
I'm looking for Santa--
(heard he's in Atlanta)
If I get out, we will slosh down a gin!

Next year, Christmas-thyme
just remember this rhyme
and go visiting 'stutes and in jails!
These places aren't fun
and I wish I were done...
Christmas stinks here! It just never fails!

I guess I got here Justin Thyme
to save my silly silly rhyme.
With ZIP responses, seemed a crime,
to let it slip to page eight or nime.


JT, that's me

well, if it's too long, don't read it. Just make a comment like...."this poem  is wayyyyy too long and I'm not gonna read it!" hehehehe

I, for one, loved the hilarity! Cute, clever, silly, all those things, yes, but creative and dark as  well. Thanks for the chuckle!

Who cares of gifts and Christmas trees
Or caroling, good yule and stuff?
Here in the 'stute our buns we freeze,
And we have ALL had Justine Uff....

We're keeping Santa and his elves
Locked Justin Kace within the 'stute.
The reindeer can fend for themselves -
The toys will be Justin Stitute's.

Now holidays are fine for some,
But celebrations we won't hear.
It may be the millennium,
But really it's Justin Newyear!!!

This Christmas was my first,
At the 'stute with some verse.
Others I have not known.

I thought it was the norm,
While witnessing the storm.
I was quiet overwhelmed.

Who knew it to be true,
It could happen to you.
Locked up with the insane.


*Blushing deepest crimson*


Whitie and my bothers never celebrated Christmas. We didn't know what it was in the forest. *shuffling my feet in the snow* This was just crazy for me. I feel better knowing that this isn't the normal thing to be doing this time of year. Thanks for the insight. *hanging my head and finding a corner to hide in*

Now what is all this commotion about, we served up a delicious meal that of course found it's way to fly through the air. The plop of sweet potatoes so perfectly on Justin Sayne's head was the best yet. Then Andrew got up and declared he was Santa Claus cause he has the crayons and he can be anyone he wants to be. No arguing was had on that topic, but Justin Kace somehow got himself all rolled up in a carpet and was screaming obsentities at Bugs Bunny. Bugs pointed at Bashful, but I know my little friend Bashful would'nt hurt a flea. Dr. Moose came to the rescue and dumped Justin Kace out on his butt and that's when the riot began. Elmer Fudd went over and kicked Dr. Moose for letting Justin free (now we know how he got in there)So then the Tin Man grabbed his oil can and started squirting it at Elmer Fudd, while The wicked Witch was hitting everyone with her broom. All I know is if we had a christmas tree as Justin spoke of, I don't know where it ended up after the riot ended, as I also lost my sanity. I need HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Excuse me friends at Passions please
Forgive, as I've been lost
I went to get us all a tree
Into the woods and frost

The trees outside the Institute
Were few and far between
And so I ventured in deep woods
To find an evergreen

Time was lost as was my way
In searching for this tree
For not just any one would do
The best this one must be

At last the perfect one was found
Majestic in it's glory
But late I was Christmas had passed
And so I pen this story

Of best intentions gone a-stray
For I wished to bring this gift
To thank my friends this holiday
Their spirits all to lift

In striving for perfection's crest
I failed miserably
And lost the chance to give my best
Once time ran out on me

Next year this tree that I have found
The Institute will grace
And before the date has passed me by
It will be in it's place

For all of us to decorate
With baubles each to bring
All thirty feet of tannenbaum
Around which we will sing

And in case I'm late again ,Happy New Years!

Hello Moose! Hey good to see ya!
Justin Thyme to let you know!
You didn't miss NOTHIN' at Christmas...
the whole thing was a blow!

And now the Thyme is running out
and soon it'll be 2K!
And maybe the 'stute computers will ZAP!
and we'll get out in a day!

Hey there, Bugs and Bashful!
It's good to see you guys!
Hang out with me until we see
the red in Cratchet's eyes!

I couldn't be gladder
no wonder, no matter,
that Y2K's here very soon!
I'm waitin' and watchin' and anticipatin'
for the once in a very blue moon!

Y'see, my friends, Thymes on our side!
If this computer screwer hits....
we'll split this damn joint open wide!
This place, the perverbial pits!

Computers run the 'stute, you see,
they keep us in a trap!
And frankly when the bug soon hits,
we're done with all this crap!

The computer chip has the lock on the door
engaged, or didn'tcha know!?
And when the Thyme is right, my friends,
the chip will let us go!

Hurray hurray for Y2K!
I'm glad it has the guts...
to break us out of this miserable 'stute
and relieve me of all of you NUTS!!!!

sincerely yours,

JT--- "Thyme Waits for NO-ONE!"

Sorry to burst your bubbles, but no Y2K glitch at this stute. You think I would let the likes of all you free into society? That's a laugh in a half, I'd be a monkey in the zoo if I let that happen. "Don't even think of trying to stuff those crayons in places where they might foul the system Andrew" (as I pull one out of the keyhole for the lock)It won't be easy, but I will keep you all here with me.

Written by Snow White...posted with her permission

It was a truly wild night
All of us in jackets white
And singing oh so very loud
We made the most amusing crowd
I've Christmas' in my days
But nothing like this darn 'stutes craze
I think I'll check out here my self
And go back to the seven elfs

There's several issues I'd like to address here with all of you psychos!

To Cratchet-
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... no Y2K bug at the 'stute? LOL... who do you think you're trying to fool? You got a lot to learn about the Power of the Loonies! We've got quite a few computer geniuses in here, y'know! How do you think we can sneak around and get access to the 'stute's main office Administrative computers to even get on this web thing and write silly poems? ha! You think while we're sneaking in and getting on these computers, we've just been playing around all year?!?!?!?! Remember the "Unknown Poet"? One of the most intelligent human beings on the face of the planet! He actually INVENTED the computer back in the '40s but.... oh never mind. You'll see when the doors crack open as the 21st century hits! hahahahahaha!  

Hey Owl!-- What'd  you do with that White girl? Holding her hostage? C' mon and admit it! You're not really an owl, you're schizoid like some of the others in here! (oh, and psssst... shhhhh... don't mention the dwarfs again! Those guys are our techno-illogical experts! Talk about a buncha hackers! Whew!) Thanks for postin' for 'lil Snow, though and see ya in the Day Room for the 2PM meeting about where where gonna meet on the outside when the Y2K chip zaps a Thyme Warp on the locks!

To Keeper- You are like the 4th or 5th person who's asked to GET IN, when all of us are trying to get out!! What makes this such a popular idea? You want in? C'mon in! Hey, wait a minute... not sure if I even trust you... maybe you're really one of the gaurds here! Ouch! Lemme go! &*&%$$$####*** Leave me alone! GEEZ!!!! C'mon, man! Let GO of me!!!

ooommph... THUD...  

Alright, already! If you say you're not a guard, you're not a guard... Jeesh!

Hey, Keeper, my buddy! So THAT's YOU??? The dude who sweeps the rugs? I didn't know you were a judge , too! Didn't recognize you when you called yourself "Keeper"~! We all just call ya "the Sweeper"!

Umm... What's a "CNA"? "Certified NUTCASE Accredidation"?

And about the Y2K Thyme thingy... Well, I'd say we are running on Borrowed Thyme. Thyme waits for no-one, y'know! And those west coast people are definitely 3 hours behind us east coast NUTS, so hopefully they'll learn something. Once we get sprung from this joint when the Y2K bug zaps open the doors, though, it won't matter anyway, because .... come hear lemme whisper in your ear... big secret.... we're taking over the whole damn shebang! LOL! The west might be the "best" but Thyme is on our side and Thyme heals all wounds and Thyme is of the essence.

Keep this info swept under the rug, you CNA, you! hehehehe

This poem is not too long. It's perfectly fun to read. However, to a new person, there appears to be quite a few of you possibly in 'stutes. I'm glad you have computer access. It's a kick to read your conversations.

So, now what do we do?
It's Justin Thyme to get outa here!
I'm ready for something new!

We're in this 'stute together!
and don't wanna do it no more
Happy New Year to all and to all a good night...
I'm headed for the door!!!

Justin Kace I got the key
And left the door ajar
From east to west at Y2K
Each loon can hit the tar....

The Keeper's in there sweeping still
Nurse Crachet's chasing him
They'll never keep us loonies in -
Cuz Justin Sayne's diverting them.

Now Moose is running in the woods
Leaving a bread crumb trail
The dwarfs they follow eating crumbs
And whistling "Over Dale"

Snow White's disquised as a nightowl
And Tweety flew the coop
Sylvester's running after him
In Y2K no 'stute's the scoop.

Justin Toxicated got waylayed
At Passions Corner Pub
Best not divulge our covert plans
We cannot have them flubbed.

The Unknown Poet's hopped a boat
He thought he'd take a cruise
To see if some might know him there
That sure would be good news.

Now Elmer Fudd's out hunting Bugs
But Bugs is much to quick
The Wicked Witch is wayout west
She thinks she'll catch a quack...

Justin Thyme snagged all the paints
As Leonardo said
He always did talk to himself
It's all in his own head.

They're running here - They're running there
One Flew Over-head I hear
The 'stute's inmates are everywhere
Remember all - We meet this year....

What was that plan again???????

Oh my what shall I do?
My wish finally came true.
Time waits for no one
so it looks you all have won.
See you all, have your fun
my end for the stute has finally come.

Oh no you don't Nurse Crachet ma'am
You can't keep Keeper in the can
You come with us, you'll understand
We have this Y2K all planned.....

Bring Keeper too - we may need him
To feign  our sanity
We've turned the tables all about
This will be fun, you'll see.....
