It started out humor, but it kinda has a bit of the everyday stresses of life for Santa too...

Have you been naughty or nice,

Do you deserve gifts or black ice,

No longer if naughty do you get coal,

For you deserve nothing so ice melts,

And nothing you will have, hope it does suffice…


If the world is going down the tubes,

Then Santa is going to give out those black cubes,

It really is a great idea, for Santa’s stress level is really high,

He can’t in good conscience sit back anymore and sigh…


Santa really does love the children on earth,

But they have been less compassionate of late,

He tries like heck to be of them considerate,

But when they make fun of him & his girth,

That’s one thing he just can’t take,

As he is very sensitive about his weight

So true, and poor Santa Fee is trying so hard to diet and exercise, I mean when I had that large everything on it extra cheese pizza last night I did wash it down with a diet soda not regular.

Merry Christmas to you Ed. I am more excited this year than last. Wasn't in a good mood last yr. For some reason I cannot sleep these past two nights. Up at 3:15 again today thought it was morning. Snowed 3 in here yesterday, supposed to be sleeting today. Can the weather have something to do with my sleeping pattern? I did not take a sleeping pill either , that could be the answer. Merry Christmas to you too Rufuz, may you get lots of love from Ed your master this holiday season.

And that mean old Mrs. Claus is relentless in nagging him about it, too. She even tried to get him to enroll in Weight Watchers, and you know what he said? HO, HO, HO!

I, for one, love Santa just the way he is. Being a bit on the chubby side, he's in good company. Ho Ho Ho! LOL Well done, Ed.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
