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.
