An Avoidable Dream

Scrooge ate an indigestible snack
before bedtime and was plagued
the entire night with a nightmare.
Old people often make that mistake-
eating something before bedtime.
After he was startled awake
Within the first hour of the dream
A little bicarbonate of soda
Would have settled his stomach
And most likely end the nightmare
where he could have slept soundly
through most or at least part of Christmas
And therefore avoiding the phantoms
that followed that scared him *hitless.
