My example

Participants in SantaCon Boston 2010, a gathering of people dressed as Santa going from bar to bar, drink at the Asgard Pub in Cambridge

Stagger Home and Fill the Stockings (Form: Eight-ette)



Please pause

for it’s late

and Santa Clause

has his rounds to make.

It’s time to leave this bar

and head for home for Pete’s sake.

You’ll have to walk. Hope it’s not far.
