A Christmas for Santa's Diary!

Christmas morn was here once more. 
The presents lay upon the floor. 
A little boy called Dagward Groom 
Awakened in his little room. 
When suddenly, good gracious me,
A Father Christmas he did see! 

He laughed and springing from his bed
He landed promptly on his head. 
" Who are you, are you my dad 
Or off the telly – someone bad?" 
" Someone bad? My gad, " said he, 
" I'm friendly Santa, can't you see? 

"I've searched and searched but cannot find 
That little gift you leave behind. " 
" I've hid your lovely glass of beer," 
Said Dagward, with a nasty sneer. 
" If I can't ride your three reindeer, 
Then you won't get your glass of beer." 

" Why, you spiteful little boy!
Then you won't get your big soft toy." 
" It doesn't bother me no more 
I saw you steal it from next door."
" I never did, the pixies made it." 
" You did too and you're a culprit!

"Through the chimney you did go 
And left the reindeer in the snow 
Within a flash, why you are back 
With that big teddy in your sack! 
I'll tell my dad your wily ways 
He'll boot you from here to USA. 

"My dad's a boxer, big and strong 
And what you've done is very wrong. 
If you're not gone when I count three
He'll hang you on our Christmas tree!"
So Santa took the boy's advice 
And he was gone within a trice.
