The kindly old gent with a draftsack before him
Scurries down the chimney of brick.
Graceland or ghetto no matter how grim
He works with an unexplained trick.
Those who don’t believe, scoff and ridicule,
They strangle the joy that he brings.
Claiming his spirit is nothing but minuscule,
A mischief only the daft would dare sing.
The arrogant believe their android smartphones
Hold the key to everlasting peace.
‘Til their batteries fizzle and they’re totally alone
Will they realize, by their conceit, they’ve been fleeced.
Suffice it to say at this intersection of seasons
Those illeists that find themselves superior,
May realize their errors for a number of reasons
Taking on a disposition that’s oh so much cheerier.
