A Somewhat Darker Santa

There was an old Santa from Limerick
Who became so odd as a maverick
He drove all his reindeer insane
When they showered him with methane
And lived the rest of his life choleric.

He was nominated Santa once more
When the weatherman forecast rain to pour
But his reindeer had all passed on
Tender and rare the steak all gone
When having shacked up with the local whore.

OMG The image of "tender and rare" venison being served had me rolling, Harry! If not for 8 syllables in lines 3 and 4 (instead of the 5-7), this would have ranked even higher. Congratulations on your placement. Competition for this contest was awesome and you did a great job. Thanks for supporting the contest with you witty verse. Hugs, Carolyn PS-Christmas card on the way

What a surprise children have coming to them in a year or two or three, depending on their age at present. For me Santa was a hero until I was 7, more or less the average age when children stop believing. This is nevertheless a depiction of a truly dark, naughty Santa! An excellent poem and a very pleasant read! Thank-you Harry. Best wishes, Jennifer
