Shivering, snowbound Santa
Sleigh stuck in the snow,
Seven, striking reindeer straying,
A sleet-and-shuddering storm show.
Sticky, sweaty Santa,
Searing, sweltering, stifling sally,
Surviving scorching sunlight,
Seeing stampeding shoppers’ spree.
Somber sorrowful Santa,
Savings and stuff swiftly spent,
Schedule’s shuffling slowly,
Sponsors subscriptions scant.
