TTTO 'Away in a Manger'

Away in Ankh-Morpork, the night growing late
Lord Downey is working, a fire in the grate.
Unheard and unbidden, a client appears,
The strangest commission the guild's had in years.

A fee of three million, cannot be dismissed
Yet how can you murder what doesn't exist?
To kill a tradition, and wipe out its ghost
You need an assassin more twisted than most

Yet one there is lurking, a true psychopath
Who's planned it already and done all the math
With this man on the mission, it's as good as been done
Say 'Goodbye' to Hogfather (and his wife, dog, and son).
