A Visit from St. Ellen

Posted on Posted in CC's Stuff

‘Twas the night before broadcast
when all through the show,
all the writers were brainstorming
with Amy Rhodes.
The set was festively decorated
by the designers with care,
in hopes that Ellen DeGeneres
soon would be there.

The viewers were nestled
all snug in their beds,
while visions of free giveaways,
danced in their heads,
to receive gifts from Nordstrom,
Nissan, Netflix and Kohl’s,
Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy,
Home Depot, Zappos.

Her loyal fans travel
from near and far,
in hopes of winning
a flashy new car,
while tWitch and Ellen
groove to the beat,
in Burbank, California’s
midwinter’s heat.

Society’s most influential people
promote their art,
as Ellen urges us all
to have a kind heart.
Celebrities take the stage
one by one,
inviting the audience
to join in on the fun.

Now, Aniston!  Now, Schumer!
Now, Kidman!  Now, Keys!
On, Witherspoon!  On, Fisher,
may her soul rest in peace.
But we must march forward,
continue on grinning,
be positive and proactive,
and always keep swimming.

Winning a trip to your show
would be a dream come true,
to sit in Geico’s skybox
and witness you,
a great entertainer
and humanitarian I admire,
with a successful career
of which I also aspire,

to make a difference,
through comedy and laughter,
but to be candid,
car insurance isn’t what I’m after.
Cash, clothes and things
are of no interest to me,
because what I strive for
is a rare opportunity,

to have my work published
and help shape the world,
in making it better
for every animal, boy and girl.
I’m a struggling writer
going through rough times,
waiting for someone
to recognize my rhymes.

I’d like nothing other
than simply this,
my only lifelong
Christmas wish,
to be given a chance,
a platform, a job,
or even an internship,
as a dancing mascot.

So I may showcase my talents
and prove my worth,
a journey of creativity,
destined since birth.
Please visit my self-titled site
at chandrabrynn,
sit back and enjoy
my sarcastic spin,

on authentic storytelling,
sarcastically clever prose,
a feminist satirist
living life on the road.
I’ve got a past rich in adventure,
a head full of thoughts,
merely waiting for someone
to connect the dots.

Regardless the outcome
as 2016 comes to a close,
let’s look to the future
wherever it goes.
Remember dear friends
to fight the good fight,
love and acceptance to all,
and to all a happy New Year’s night!
