I've Just Got a Shock About Santa

 

Hark I hear friend Santa

Shuffling down my chim

Sor-ry to disappoint you Don

Your he is not a him

 

What?.....

 

You also say since getting here

From my date of birth

Santa's just a fantasy?

Dreamt up by those on earth?

 

Sorry Don.....

 

Now what's this thing he's not a him?

(Or him's not he, vice versa)

Think what you like in this age Don

(My poem's getting worser)

 

 

Thale?...

 

Yes Don.....

 

Is Santa just a figment of my imagination?....

 

Think what you like Don....

 

But Thale? I see him/her each year in the store with kiddies on his/her lap?....

 

I'm all confused now.....

 

I wish they hadn't gone and trodden on my belief system....

 

Not very Christmassy of them Don.......

We'd never be untraditional in Aus Ruth
Santa in little red shorts?
Reindeer a no no in our clime
But remove the hot beard, it abort


Just read about the Tesco sweat shop story......

I bet the santas in Austrailia are sweating dressed up in all their gear...or do Austrailian Santas wear little red shorts? Speaking of sweat...did you head about the Tesco Christmas card sweat shop news story Don?
