Santa's Middle Name

On one Christmas Eve To those who believe News was declared Honest and fair Information needed for those trivial pursuits About the red outfitted man wearing snowy black boots “This is to be proclaimed Santa Claus has a middle name!” Bellowed the communication crier Reading from a royally documented flyer “What is it? Does it fit?” Townspeople asked About the imaginary facts Wondering if this was a wise act Handled properly with tact As the name was announced Faith it was pronounced Creating such a buzz Describing exactly what Santa Claus does A magical spirit When one hears it Conjuring up invisible power Having strength not being a coward Energizing a special force Assisting in dealing with adversity, of course Changing things for the better Reason enough to write a letter Explaining the trouble Behind the burst bubble While asking for peace and joy Which appears in the form of a hand-crafted toy Truth be told about this lesson Where faith is addressing Combatting the problem that is the mess Forcing the enemy to confess Santa exists Equipped with a warm, loving Isotoner wearing fist Guiding us through life’s cold blurry wintry mist Giving the gift of understanding During a time when things are demanding Disrupting all the planning So, go off and pray With a simple request to say “I am not scared,” Remember to show the Santa stare “Warning don’t you dare Faith is inside me Now let us enjoy our afternoon tea.”
