Love Santa

Love Santa

Due to all the regulations
And coronavirus rules
I’m giving it a miss this year
Yes, I know it sounds quite cruel.

But 14 days of isolation
In each country, I pass through
Is such an inconvenience
And something I can’t do!

If I can only use five reindeer
As the rules seem to imply
They wouldn’t get me off the ground
Never mind get my sleigh to fly.

How can we all wear face masks?
As the government propose
We won’t see where we were going
If we cover Rudolf’s nose!

The only way this year you’ll see me
And I know you will agree
Is to buy a tiny likeness
And hang it on your tree.

Love Santa

I'm past my sell by date but still going strong, I love reading, gardening, writing and sketching, I live in a very small fishing town and love it. I was born in Coventry but city life was never for me, I have lived in lots of different places, but I am finally settled here (much to the relief of my husband)

Really funny. Santa is such a magician, I’m sure he will find a way.

I'm sure he will,though just think how much money we could save if we told the grand kids he can't make it this year!!!
