News, but not the serious kind
But Santa, you can’t swim!
‘Twas the night before Christmas, and out on the crick,
I saw a big fat guy – it must be Saint Nick!
Giving out gifts, his relatable craft,
Delivering stuff by inflatable raft!
He said, “I’ve got toys for your son and your daughter,
“They even get gifts if they live on the water!
“Every good child gets what he deserves!”
Then he shook when he laughed, like a bowl of preserves…
His eyes, how they twinkled, not at all vapid,
He shouted, “It’s time now to head for the rapids!”
But I heard him exclaim, as he waved toward the docks,
“Merry Christmas to all! HEY! WATCH OUT FOR THOSE ROCKS!”
