Da Night Before Christmas


I've been told by some that I have a New Yawk accent. (Yeah I think I do too....lol...so when I saw (sore) the following I thought it would be appropriate ta share wit all youse.

A BROOKLYN NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
(Read this with a thick Brooklyn Italian accent)

'Twas the night before Christmas,
Da whole house was mella,
Not a creature was stirrin',
Cuz I had a gun unda da pilla.

When up on da roof I heard somethin' pound,
I sprung to da window,
To scream, "
YO! Keep it down!"

When what to my wanderin' eyes should appear,
But da Don of all elfs,
And eight friggin' reindeer!
Wit' slicked back black hair,
And a silk red suit,
Don Christopher wuz here,
And he brought da loot!

Wit' a slap to dare snouts,
And a yank on dare manes,
He cursed and he shouted,
And he called dem by name.

"Yo Tony, Yo Frankie,Yo Vinny, Yo Vito,
Ay Joey, Ay Paulie,Ay Pepe, Ay Guido!"
As I drew out my gun
And hid by da bed,
He flew troo da winda
And slapped me 'side da head.

"What da hell you doin'
Pullin' a gun on da Don?
Now all you're gettin' is coal,
You friggin' moron!"

Den pointin' a fat finga
Right unda my nose,
He twisted his pinky ring,
And up da chimney he rose.

He sprang to his sleigh,
Obscenities screamin',
Away dey all flew,
Before he troo dem a beatin'.

Den I heard him yell out,
What I did least expect,
"Merry Friggin' Christmas to all,
And yous better show some respect!"
Peace

That's cool - a New York Accented poem! :) What's the difference between a Brooklyn accent and a Queens accent. Would that bollocks your poem?

Odat said...

To me there are none. But I'll have to ask a native Brooklynite.

Did you know the reindeer legend is meant to come from starry-eyed Laplandic fly agaric high visions of the reindeer flying after you DRINK THEIR PISS after they eat the red-capped white-spotted mushroom (Santa Claws's colours, note) ... that's the legend of the trippin' Sami so I've been told! ;->...
