A Christmas Tale: "The Ginger Army"

'Twas the day before Christmas, and a mad scientist planned a feat,
to make gingerbread men that would rule the street.

She mixed up spices, butter and flour;
and let the mix stew for several hours.

While working to the chants
of Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, Jack White and Robert Plant,
she carefully crafted each and every one,
Rolled, cut and baked, second to none.

Next came the bones made of icing,
The army was cooled and ready for an uprising.

Along the way a few lost arms legs or heads,
but it didn't matter, for they would still fight to the end.

The mad scientist admired her army,
and giggled in delight at her plan to take over Christmas, however it was slightly barmy!

However the mad scientist realised, there was one key issue that would lead to defeat,
for chewy gingerbread were delicious to eat!

The army ran and hid,
however, there was one small problem - they were too numerous to fit under the lid.

The scientist had a thought - maybe it would be best
and give the plan for world domination a rest.

Instead, she decided, let the gingerbread by consumed,
and rule Christmas through good food.

So the ginger army has been shared and eaten
another Christmas treat that just can't be beaten!
