A Phobia -win

As the festive season on, people look forward
One woman with an impending sense of doom
The thought of the man in red get squirmed
As her parents used to drag her to sit on Santa’s lap.

Her terror booms up if Santa is in the vicinity
A severe Phobia of Father Christmas grown.
Barring her even to watch the TV programs
For the fear of Christmas advert will come on.

The phobia may be common among the young
But phobia typically left behind in her adulthood
Makes her feel sorry for any children she will have
She’ll never be taking them to see Santa’s Grotto.


The poem is based on a true story published in a recent newspaper

    This is true, there are adults out the that have a definite fear of Santa! The probably got this way from their childhood, when they saw a large man laughing at them and making them sit on his knee...when they didn't want to! They forced them to sit on his knee, even if they are kicking and screaming, only to finally be taken by their mother who is embarrassed and a little tiffed at the whole situation. But that experience, done year after year, just made it worse, and then the phobia set in!
