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!
