Santa Claus Loses His Naughty-Nice List

	   

		On Christmas morning once upon a time,
		the world was filled with screaming, crying kids.
		Confused and frantic parents struggled to
		determine why their kids had blown their lids.

		It was mass chaos; children, parents too,
		all ran amuck. At last the parents learned
		the awful truth: that Santa hadn’t left
		one toy for anyone. As anger burned

		they soon would see white crumpled paper in
		each hand. That’s right! Old Santa left a note—
		not cash, I Phones, laptops, expensive games,
		gift cards, or stylish shoes and clothes. I quote:

		“I’ve lately been a little scatterbrained—
		mislaying things. You know I’m really old.
		This time I lost my ‘nice and naughty’ list.
		Next year you kiddies who are good as gold

		will get some extra presents; naughty ones,
		BE NICE, and you’ll get goodies next year too!
		I hope you see why I left you this note.
		Without my list, what else was there to do?”
				
		Did naughty children change their ways? Nice kids—
		did they get nicer still? How did things go?
		Well, since this story, front-page news at first,
		did not rate follow-ups, we’ll never know!
