The Real Forks Night before Christmas

The Real Forks Night before Christmas

’Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town

The businesses in Forks (except 76) were all closed down

The decorations were hung down main street with flair

By our city employees, under Dave Zellar’s care

When down at town square, there arose such a clatter

We don’t have a town square, but that doesn’t matter

The point is, on the left, near Ron’s Shell Station

A scene was unfolding into a gossipy situation

A cop had someone pulled over, the sirens were a’blare

Within five minutes, the whole town had become aware

Everyone asked friends, “Do you know? Did you see?”

“I heard its Mr. Monohon, but you didn’t hear that from me.”

Soon a lady said, “The mayor’s getting arrested for sure.”

Apparently a neighbor’s boyfriend’s mom’s friend told her.

As the rumors spread like wildfire, the story grew.

Somehow the city council members became involved, too.

And Juanita and Mike and Kevin, John and Bill

It was their turn for the Forks rumor mill

Word on the street, accurate or not

They were drinking and driving and eventually caught

Finally, as it happens, the truth came to light

Not surprising in Forks, no tales were right

Mr. Monohon was just heading home from city hall

No drinking had been done by him or the council at all

So what were the sirens and lights all about?

Just a simple case of a taillight out

Rick Bart gave a warning and said, “Fix that light.”

Then he said Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
