Christmas Message from Kentec (ft. Nat King Cole)

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire (not recommended by Kentec)
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide Panels being hung to fight fire
Folks checking out their new Syncro’s

Everybody knows a Taktis and some mistletoe
Help keep Santa’s workshop safe, that’s right
And stunning Sigma’s with their lights all aglow
Will make the elves sleep safe at night

We know that Santa’s on his way
With lots of bespoke printed panels on his sleigh
And every mothers child is gonna spy
To see if the extinguishants really put out the fire

So we’re offering this simple phrase
For customers with zones from 1 to 82
Although its been said
Many times many way
Merry Christmas to you.
