'Twas three weeks before Preview (five weeks for Nashville), when all through LifeWay,
Every creature was scurrying; even the office mouse named Ray;
The boxes were packed on the dock with care,
In realization the truck soon would be there;
The Specialist longed for time in their beds;
While last minute details swirled in their heads;
And the Logistical Team with their logistical map,
Had devoured gallons of caffeine in prep for that long final lap,
When down the hall there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.
Away to the computer I flew like a flash,
Googled so quickly I feared a great crash.
And what do you suppose my brown eyes found?
Yes, hotel rooms in Nashville still abound!
So if you feared no room at the Inn (Holiday Inn Express Downtown),
Just look 20 minutes east (near the airport) and you're sure to win;
A great night's sleep at half the charge,
You'll be rested and ready to live life large.
With your fingers so nimble, so lively and quick,
Find hotels in the 37214 area code with one simple click.
Now, Pastor! now, Director! now Craft and Rec Leader!
On, Teacher! on, Decorator! on, Missions and Music Leader!
To the computer or phone! before heading to the mall!
Now register today! register today! register today all!
