The Christmas When Santa Got Fat

The Christmas when Santa got Fat Kris Kringle rubbed his belly; he was feeling really hungry indeed Mrs Claus had put him on a diet of what he felt was chicken feed Brussel Sprouts and Lima Beans and lots of Spinach Green Life’s unfair when you’re Santa Claus and still your wife is mean. So what if he‘d piled on the pounds and his belly was very round He could surely fit down any chimney without the slightest sound Oh well he thought its Christmas eve , children would put out some snacks Milk, Cookies and Candy Cane would put his tummy back on track. He got into his silver sleigh and heaved a mighty sigh Rudolph, , Prancer and Vixen waved to Mrs. Claus goodbye He was really very hungry the clouds had begun to look like food Then again if he asked his reindeers, they would be so very rude They all agreed with Mrs. Claus, Santa was rounder in his seat They hadn’t even let him carry his goodie bag of sweets The last place on his list was the house of Jill and Joe Aha he fit down the chimney and he heaved a mighty ho He placed the doll and toy train right underneath the tree He saw the milk and cookies and rubbed his hands in glee He ate and ate the yummy snacks till his pants felt very tight Cheerful now he began to feel Christmas Eve was a jolly good night They he tried to climb up the chimney but heavens he couldn’t get back He wriggled and squirmed but had to agree his middle was very fat Rudolph, Prancer , Vixen he very softly called You’ll have to pull get me out of here I can’t seem to move at all The reindeers whinnied suspiciously what Santa felt was a nasty laugh He now agreed sheepishly why his food had been cut down to half They heaved and with a mighty yell, Santa came flying out It was a good thing it was still midnight for no one had heard him shout When they reached back home the reindeers gleefully recounted the tale When he saw Mrs. Claus’ angry face, he began to get very pale But when she gave her sweet belly laugh, Santa heaved a sigh of relief It’s a good thing they got you out my dear before they thought you were a thief! It’s a stricter diet for you this year before you revisit Jane and Joe Or else instead of the chimney, you will have to ask to use the door!.
