Almost Busted By Santa's Elf...A NiaG Poem

Updated on December 7, 2011


It's 12:24 my cheek's to the floor

If I strain I can see what my parents got


Underneath the door I can see feet shuffling some more

What I want, I hope no one forgot


Though my baby brother's four

He better not touch what's mine, I’ll take him down that li'l snot


All bets are off I’ll say no more

I’ll pinch his arm ‘til he thinks he's just gotten a shot


If only I can see, my necks getting sore

And my back is cramping a lot


If I can just crack the door

I can catch them hustling, with our gifts, on the spot


I peep to see something that shakes me to the core

One large man with elves putting toys in a slot


It was not the parents that I adore

It was Santa placing down a toy robot


My parents weren’t lying about this man of yore

I slowly slipped back to my cot


I can't tell a soul about this big score

They'll think I'm fibbing like when I said I was Prince of Camelot.


Oh no, on the way back my pants caught and tore

And in my throat grew a huge knot


Now all was quiet minus my brother’s snore

Someone’s coming to see if I’m being a bad tot


The door opens with what sounds like a roar

And I lay chin up stiff in my cot


The door closed back like a tide from shore

Guess they thought I was sleep when I was not


Whew that was close, I won’t sneak anymore

From this day on, a good boy I’ll be ‘til I rot

      Hi NiaG, I see you still believe in Santa Claus, that was what my Dad used to say, If I would say I didn't believe something he would say ,you don't even believe in Santa Claus, that has been many years ago.Cute poem. I hope you get what you want for Christmas,Clara
