Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the North Pole
Not a creature was worried, thanks to ConnectPay Payroll;
Santa Clause’s taxes were already filed with care,
In hopes that the IRS would soon say “all clear!”;
The elves were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of overtime pay danced in their heads;
Mrs. Clause in her office stood up with a clap,
She had just submitted payroll on time without a single mishap,
When out in the workshop there arose such a clatter,
Mrs. Clause sprang to find the night-shift elf fallen from his ladder.
Away to her desk she flew like a flash,
Dialed her Connected Rep’s number and claimed the elf had whiplash.
The Rep contacted her broker and relayed the elf’s blow.
“But don’t worry,” he said. “Your Pay-As-You-Go gives you better cash flow;”
When, what to her wondering ears did she hear,
With her Workers’ Comp, Mrs. Clause had absolutely nothing to fear!
Then all of a sudden, she heard those hooves click,
She knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
As rapid as ConnectPay’s response-time, with reindeers he came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;
"Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!
On, COMET! on CUPID! on, DONNER and BLITZEN!
To your timeclock you go! Punch in, you’re on call!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
As the reindeer clocked in, St. Nick gave a sigh;
With a timeclock integration, their payroll never went awry.
Then up to the house-tops the reindeer they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
Off they went, in a twinkling, to deliver their presents;
Dolls and trains, video games, and all that was pleasant.
And for their parents, St. Nick had one more trick up his sleeve.
He’d also deliver PPP forgiveness to every business on this Christmas Eve.
He listened and learned and was coached by his Rep;
To fill out every forgiveness form, without missing a step.
He watched ConnectPay’s webinars and knew all the how-to;
To help the small business community do what they do.
St. Nick - how he smiled! His joy - how elated!
As he flew on to deliver every present long-awaited.
With magic, he steered to the sky once again;
And in no time, they were soaring over the Great Lakes of Michigan.
While he flew, Mrs. Clause was doing work of her own;
She was deep in discussion, her employment lawyer on the phone.
Since her HR Portal gave her access to unlimited advice,
She could confide in her lawyer without ever thinking twice.
Once done, she sat down and relaxed for the night;
That is, until she saw the glow of Rudolph’s amazing red light.
She ran out to greet St. Nick as he emerged on his sled;
With a wink of his eye, Mrs. Clause knew she had nothing to dread;
He stepped down from the sleigh and went straight to his wife,
His arms filled with enough cookies to last all his life.
“That was fast!” Mrs. Clause said with a smile and laugh;
“And with ConnectPay we also took care of all of our staff!”
As they headed to bed, Mrs. Clause gave a cheer;
Thanks to ConnectPay, they could celebrate another great year.
At last, St. Nick could yell, as they turned out the light,
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!
