Merry Ag twitter Christmas from Kowalchuk Farms
Twas the night before Christmas and all through my timeline
Not a message was happening............Not even one of mine
The farmers were recording, their podcasts with care
In the hopes that everyone, would be grateful, like, and share
When suddenly on my phone, there arose such a clatter
I shut off my ringer till I knew what was the matter
Away to my notifications I tapped like a flash
Opening up my conversations, I thought my screen would crash
I checked those I followed none of them had Tweeted
Not Sharkey not Faber, I almost had to be seated
Then what to my wandering eyes should appear
But a bunch of bright hearts, I maybe had nothing to fear
"By High heels! by, Oldman Gord! now Daily cowman and Wheat Geer!
Now SenatrStanford, now Wheatlander, now Dirt Sweat n tears!
They all liked my post but I hadn't even tweeted?
It wasn't something I said? I felt like I cheated!
I became quite worried, As it was almost Christmas day!
So I sprang to my Computer, But had nothing new to say
We had covered many topics, from Bitcoin to Trump
If I mentioned them again, I would be quite a chump
Then I realized it wasn't me who had caused all the stir
It was someone else's tweet, and now I knew for sure
It was a jolly old elf, who had re-tweeted my Pic
It was Santa himself, who found my Massey...... quite Sick!
It's not all about followers, or the re-tweets and Likes
It's about telling our stories, and guys like Rob Saiks
We don't do it for money or some type of Fame
We do it to fight lies, and "food fear accounts" that are Lame!
Our Crops and our Livestock, is why we're all here
They make people happy with thick steaks and great Beer
It's not just the farmers, we come as a set
From the scientist, the trucker and Cody the vet
So throughout these months, You all brought me such Cheer
So Merry Christmas to all ......and a Joyous New Year!
