The Fright Before Christmas

Twas the Fright Before Christmas and all through the City,
Many creatures were stirring, none of them pretty.
Presents were scattered waiting for clicks.
Proof that the Gamester was up to old tricks.
Villains were nestled all snug in their lairs
Nefarious plots their only cares.
My teammates and I had just gotten back
From thwarting another Freakshow attack.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But Vampires and Witches at the wrong time of year.
