Santa! Oh, Santa! Please listen to me. It’s for Dragon! I’m begging you, please! Dragon didn't mean to be naughty! He’s crying! He’s even down, on his knees! Christmas is coming! He wants to be nice! Heaven knows what, he’ll do next! It’s been quite a week! Beyond his control! And, of course, you know, the rest! First, he swooped in to help an old Lady, as she tried to walk across a street. But the wind from his wings; caught her and blew her away, and into a heap! He volunteered: as a candy stripper, helping patients, at a hospital, without reward. No smoking allowed, with the seriously ill, his Fire blew up, that one LITTLE ward. He raked all the leaves for old Mister Brown, for free; who was so very, pleased. He gave Dragon an at-a boy! And added a slap on his back, making him sneeze. Which startled a spark, from Dragons great mouth. It’s a pity… what they say… Mr. Brown’s house won’t be finished rebuilding, till… next spring and a day. Dragon helped with the neighborhood school playground… monitoring the swings. Upon hearing the comment, “I want to go higher”, they found Space, was achieved. Now, sad and so lost, Dragon checked out a place, Google Earth had blurred out… Jets forced him down, it was a secret location, now wiki-leaks-men run, all about. At an Old Folks Picnic, Dragon grabbed 2 oldsters, then sat on a 3rd, one windy day. Stopping them from being blown away, the 3rd leaves intensive care, soon, they say. Baby sitting, a baby that kept crying, Dragon grew so upset, smoke billowed forth. The firemen decided, until his smoke is under control, ‘no babysitting’, henceforth! Santa is great! This we all definitely know! To get all these problems under control... He said ‘don’t try so hard!’ As he found Dragon’s heart not only nice, but pure gold! Peace was ensured, as he sent Dragon home… for his family to enjoy, and to enfold! Now life will be better, for all! I’m sure!… Or so I do hope, to behold! But… Pardon me, Santa… Did you just… say?… He’s officially nice, in your view? Santa, perhaps a warning is due. His wish list, 2 miles long, is coming to you! For all, it’d been quite a week, mission accomplished, as Santa gave a knowing wink! ‘Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! Peace on Earth’, even with Dragon around, me-thinks.
