'Twas the match before Christmas, when all thro' the rift,
Not a champion was stirring, not even a twitch;
The mejai’s were hung by the shopkeep with care,
In hopes that St. Zilean soon would be there;

The summoners were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of pentakills danc'd in their heads,
And Lulu in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our game for a long winter's nap-
When out on the spawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the nexus to see what was the matter.

Away to the turrets I flew with a flash,
Tore open the shop, and bought out the stash.
Diana stood on the breast of the new fallen snow,
Giving the lustre of mid-game to combat below;

When, what to my wondering clairvoyance should appear,
But a minature sleigh, and eight tiny Kog-deer,
With a little old driver, in a coat of vermillion,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Zilean.

More rapid than Hecarim his champions they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and call'd them by name:
"Now! Janna, now! Karma, now! Leona, and Vi,
"On! Karthus, on! Kha’zix, on! Trundle and Corki;
"To the top of the lane! to the top of the base!

"Now poke away! poke away! poke away all!"
As bronze players before the challengers fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, try not to die;

So up to the base-top the champions they flew,
With an inventory full of actives - and St. Zilean too:
And then in a twinkling, I saw on the screen
The pinging and ringing of each little teen.

As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the top lane St. Zilean came with a bound:
He was dress'd all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnish'd with ashes and soot;
A bundle of items was flung on his back,
And he look'd like a peddler just opening his pack:

His eyes - how they sparked! his smile how merry,
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry;
His droll little mouth was drawn up like Ashe’s bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;

A look into the future he held in his left forehand
But the cosmos enwrapped him and began to expand
He wore a large clock, and little round cogs
That turned when he laugh'd, and tamed the dogs:

He was thin and lucid, a man on a mission,
And I laugh'd when I saw him without his permission;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And fill'd all the mejai’s; then turn'd with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his clock
And giving a spin, it was death he did mock.

He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew, back to base to buy an abyssal:
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight-
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good match.

I already posted my League christmas poem in another thread, but as long as we're rhyming here I'll repost it.

'twas the game before christmas when all through the lodging,
the trolls were all trolling, and the pros were queue-dodging.
The keybindings were customized with uttermost care,
in hopes that their jungler would soon be there.

The carries were nestled safe behind their supports,
While top lane was feeding to judge by reports.
And Cait in her quicksilver and I in my veil,
Had just started roaming to countergank Kayle

When out in the jungle there arose such a riot,
Vi’s getting fed and must go on a diet!
Off to the jungle I rushed with my flash
And along behind me came Cait with her quicksilversash.

The fog of war was thick for their carry was graves,
And his smokescreen summoned a befuddling haze
As the smoke cleared away, what on my screen did appear?
But a christmasy manitee bursting with holiday cheer.

He sparkled with water droplets still fresh from the surf,
And I knew in that moment is must be saint Urf!
He pulled out his sack and began giving out presents
With a chuckle he said “are you shocked by my presence?”
“Yes to be honest” I said with chagrin
“you were killed by warwick, and he’s wearing your skin”
“oh ye of little faith?” the manitee replied
“ ‘Twas but a body that so long ago died”

“Manitees are magic do you not see?”
“I will live on, so long summoners hearts contain glee”
“For the magic of manitees is greater than death”
“I’ll be back each year so long as there’s carols on our breath”

“Now speaking of werewolves I’ve got a present for him”
“could you point in the direction of that little old grim.”
“sure” I replied “he’s our jungler in fact.”
“He’s probably at red buff, as he recently backed”

“Thank you young man, but now I must be going”
“But here is your present, it’s just perfect for slowing”
And with a grin on his face and twinkle in his eyes
He handed me a rod of crystal, they call it Rylai’s

And then he was gone like a thief in the night
Leaving me better equipped for my fight
Our counter jungle attempt went undetected.
The end of Vi’s spree was entirely unexpected

As we counted our gold and returned to our lane
The announcer said something we couldn’t explain.
“An ally has been slain” came the monotone warning.
Then over the chat came a profanity filled mourning.

Warick’s summoner name appeared alongside the rage-filled text
And you may have trouble believing what happened next.
Out of the jungle emerged Urf with a fresh wolf-skin pelt.
He then straightened his jacket and tightened his belt.

With a grin on his face and a twinkle in his eyes
Urf the holiday manitee said his goodbyes.
“merry showdown to one, merry snowdown to all”
“Please spread some holiday cheer in this holiday brawl!”

“Now I must leave for the end of the Snowdown is nigh”
“But I’ll be back next year, there’s no need to cry”
With that his nose lit up and he flew off into the night
And I heard one final goodbye as he passed out of sight.

“Now be good little champions and summoners too.”
“Or one day Urf the Manitee may come for YOU”

And joker got away!
