’Twas the night before Christmas and through most of the land
Band 14 was quiet as a mouse.
No band 14 was playing in most of the states.
The towers were bare and the devices not shared,
But there were hopes that band 14 soon would be there.
Public Safety was there, waiting to serve
While visions of FirstNet danced in their heads,
And TJ and Mike wearing Santa caps
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.
When out of the states there arose such a clatter
They sprang to the Internet to see what was the matter
Away to the keyboards they flew like a flash
Tore open twitter, and there read the next post.
The screen was alive with a new set of tweets
That gave light to the terrible plight.
When what to their wondering eyes should appear,
But a tweet from Bill Schrier and others as well.
The tweet filled the screen
They knew in a moment that all would end well.
More rapid than eagles more tweets they did come,
As Bill called out and shouted all their names
Now! On Harlin, On Sue, On JJ and Jeff,
Now work away, work away all!
So up to the challenge they arose with a yell
With plans for the network they were ready to go.
Then in a twinkling they knew it was true,
The network would be delayed of that there was proof.
As they shook their heads another tweet did arrive,
Down the screen it came for all to behold
It was addressed to each of them and all,
As they read it they laughed with glee
Knowing the work they had done
Would soon be rewarded with towers and sites.
Santa had tweeted for all of them to see
That the delays would be over in the blink of an eye.
Public Safety would get what it knew it needed
And FirstNet would come to fruition.
As the tweets, they did come, the last one of note
Was from Santa, of course, and across the screen it did float
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
From all of us to all of you, Happy Holidays!
