Twas the night before Christmas on the old Yavin base.
All around there was silence, of the Empire no trace.
When away in the Hanger arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bunk to see what was the matter.
The hanger was dark but I heard a low humming,
As the sound became louder I knew something was coming.
Hiding myself, I peered through a crack,
And with a hand on my blaster, prepared to attack.
Out of the darkness weaved a repulsor-lift carrier,
Over burdened with presents, it had crashed through a barrier.
All over the floor the gifts they were scattered,
But the driver kept on as if little else mattered.
Depositing presents by each X-Wing fighter,
The strain on his craft became lighter and lighter.
He spoke not a word as he continued his task,
Who is this fellow? I wanted to ask.
He was dressed in a flight suit from his head to his toes,
He was chubby and bearded with a shiney red nose.
His eyes - how they twinkled, his plump cheeks - how merry,
But the way that he drove! - Like he'd drunk all Jan's sherry.
Faster and faster he worked through the night,
And when he finally spied me, he had such a fright!
I knew in that moment - it wasn't St. Nick!
It was pilot, Jek Porkins playing a trick.
He sprang to his X-Wing, his droid gave a whistle,
And away they both flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he flew out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"
After providing crabboy329 with a Rebel-Cart for his LDD reversed engineered Yavin Base I felt I needed to make a 'proper' personnel carrier. So here it is - I can't make it for real because I don't have enough cheese...
