Do Not Disturb

Hush, Santa's sleeping,
After a long, arduous trip;
Warm and cozy in his bed,
Hugging a bottle of nip

Soaring through enemy air space,
To nations far and near;
A task we'd never sign up for,
Though he does it every year

Through the thickest of storms,
Through the darkest of night;
No rain, wind, or snow,
Will ever delay his flight

Winter's frigid bite,
A desert's blinding sand;
Santa's lowly mission,
Is joy throughout each land

Squeezing down tight chimneys,
Singed by burning logs;
Tripping over power cords,
Attacked by vicious dogs!

Your journey's accomplished,
Now go and sleep in peace;
Another year is waiting,
The madness all repeats!

    Hello. Milton. Very clever and funny. Yes I'm new to this. Or at least I've had a long absense. I never wrote one poem during my entire ridiculous marriage. Now, I'm getting my life back and its flowing again. Thanks for your kind words. It means a great deal to me. David
