Santas Lament

Santa's Lament

I'm sending this note to advise you.
That taxes have taken away,
The things I have found most essential.
My reindeer, my workshop, my sleigh.

Now I'm making my rounds on a donkey,
He's old and crippled and slow,
So you will know, if I don't see you on Christmas,

I'll be out on my ASS in the snow.
