Angelwing's SMILES4U - 'Twas the night before Y2K

'Twas the night before Y2K

'Twas the night before Y2K, and all through the house,
not a creature was stirring, which annoyed this old louse.
He thought and he pondered of what will come with the sun,
Riots, Destruction, "I might get to use my gun!"
But, alas as he knew deep down it was not to be,
"It will just be another boring suburban morning for me",
and so he sat and he stared thinking "life really sucks,
no panic, no chaos, and no military trucks",
and then it came to him, like the warmth of the summer,
with this idea he knew his life was no bummer.
"As my neighbor closes his window, and withdraws his sash,
I will go behind his house, and turn off his gas!
As he rolls in his sleep, smiles and muses,
I will sneak in his garage, and turn off his fuses!
In the morning he will wake and wish his house was hotter,
step into the shower, but I turned off his water!
and then he will panic and think "the media hype was right,
life as I knew it ended last night."
Oh this is great, this will really make me happy!
and when he finds out it was me, he will feel so sappy.
But really it is good, a reminder to be humble.
That it doesn't take much for society to crumble.
