Santa's Story - Christmas Poetry

Santa Claus felt old and fat,

Looking down the chimney stack.

He thought

I'm never going to get down that,

And rued the year that he'd spent sat


In front of a computer screen.

Online shopping

Having been

The only way to solve those lists

Sent to him

As children wish

For iPhones, iPads, MP3's,

Children these days

Never pleased

To receive a wooden toy

Hand made by elves

For each girl and boy.


The elves had had a training day,

To learn computers

The modern way,

Facebook, Twitter, Google plus,

An online presence was a must!


And Santa's home had now become

Santa (dot) Corps

A corporation!

Thanks to this he paid no tax,

And spent the summer

In Barbados!


So was the magic of Christmas lost?

As Santa stood

His breath embossed

With sparkles given by Jack Frost,

His reindeer waiting,

Never lost!


Not for Santa

On this night,

Because soon his reindeer

Would take flight

But first to solve this chimney stack,

Easy!

His magic fairy dust would deal with that!

      Morning Jennifer.

      What a great Christmas hub.

      Well written and all so true. You might say it's a sign of the times.

      LOL Ghaelach

      Hi Jennifer, this was a lovely funny poem, deep down it is wishing the older days were back! I do! Kids seem to miss the magic of it all. A few years ago a colleague of mine was telling me that her daughter said, "have I only got 11 presents this year?" Bearing in mind those eleven presents were not cheap I was pretty disgusted. My reply was, "take one to a charity shop then tell her she's only got ten now!" This daughter was at that time 16, so not a baby! That's exactly what I would have done!

      Voted your poem up really good and I love the santa.corps line!

      Hi Bill! Thank you, I think Santa did pretty well on his tax breaks, I heard that at this very moment he's on a "business trip" with his wife in Thailand (they love the food) for some much needed R & R before the busy month ahead... :-)

      Always love your visits my friend, all the best from England, Jen

      Hi Jan! I agree with you, some teenagers, especially these days, seem to be all about what they can get, and the true magic of Christmas and giving to others is completely lost on them!

      Thanks for the visit and the vote my friend, (when that line popped into my head at work yesterday I actually laughed out loud and had to stop to write it down... :-) )

      All the best from the riverbank, Jen
