'Twas the Hour Before True Blood, when all through the house
not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse.
The clickers were laid by the TV with care,
I sat by the TV and started to stare.
The dog was nestled all snug in his bed,
while visions of Milk Bones danced in his head.
And Hubby in his jammies, and I in my gown,
Plopped ourselves on the sofa and settled down.
When from the TV there arose such a sight,
I bounced up and down - True Blood tonight!
The opening credits flew by in a flash,
Then the previous season was mostly rehashed.
The moon on the face of Bill Compton just shone
As he looked down at Sookie, they weren't both alone,
A dog in the bushes kept them in sight
My heart was just pounding - True Blood tonight!
With all of the plots the hour went by quick,
I knew if Lafayette was dead I'd be sick.
I hoped to see Eric, I hoped to see Pam,
I hoped to see Tara I hoped to see Sam:
"Now Jason! Now Terry!
Now, Arlene and Hoyt!
On, Jessica! On, Maryann!
On, Eggs and Andy!
To Sookie's porch!
To the front of Merlott's!
Now down to Shreveport!
Dash away all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
The plots swirled around - who would live, who would die?
Jason is making a terrible mistake,
MaryAnn smiles her smile that is fake.
And then, in a twinkling, the hour was done
I was panting for more, though I had fun.
I went over the episode to see what was planned,
I'd watch it again and again on Demand.
Then rush to the forums to visit with folks
Go over the details, make lots of jokes .
Debate the merits of Eric or Bill
Look for hidden clues, I can't get my fill.
Before I turn off the computer and turn out the light
"Happy True Blood to all, and to all a good night!"
Thanks to the forum !
