What does Christmas look like in The Walking Dead world? Maybe something like this:
T’was the night before Christmas
In the Safe Zone
And everything was quiet
Not even a walker moan
Michonne in her kerchief
And Rick in his Sheriff’s hat
Had just settled down
For a long winter’s nap
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
Rick sprang from his bed (on the floor) to see what was the matter.
Away to the window he tore like a flash
Threw open the shutters and jerked up the sash
When what to his wondering eyes did appear
But Hershel in a sleigh
With 8 strong reindeer
He smiled at Rick with his fatherly smile
And said “I know that I’ve been gone awhile but
Rick how I’ve missed you, Carl, and the rest
I know you’re facing a difficult test.
I went to see Maggie and my grandson at Hilltop
But I know I couldn’t leave without one more stop.
I’m proud of you Rick and all that you’ve done.
But now you’re facing a battle that simply must be won.
Glenn is with me now, my son has come home
And even though you’re feeling weak,
Broken and alone
There’s still people depending on you and you need to fight.
Evil can’t win there will always be light.
I know you’re heart broken and feeling blue
But you can’t sit and cry,
You all have jobs to do.
You don’t have to be Negan’s pawn
You can do it Rick you’re not too far gone.
Keep Carol close, don’t let her go
Together our family is stronger than you know.
Keep Carl and Judith safe, my grandson too
And know that I’ll always be watching out for you.”
Then he flew off, up over the gate
Not even stopping as Rick yelled, “Hershel! Wait!”
