Santa radioed in to say
Christmas Eve wasn’t going well
Two Reindeer had the flu and
Santa slid from a roof and fell

He scared a young child in Boise
Got bitten by a dog in Seattle
He got so flustered he even
Gave a teen in Chicago a rattle!

The Elves decided to give him
A welcome home surprise
They giggled as they built
A sight for poor Santa’s eyes.

Mrs. Claus shook her head in wonder
At the creation she saw in the yard
The Elves worked into the evening
Thinking gift giving was really hard!

Santa warned them he was arriving
As his sleigh came in to land
So every Elf worker rushed outdoors
Greeting Santa with a marching band!

Santa looked down and saw
The welcome sign the Elves had made
Bright lights and glitter adorned it
With silver and gold inlaid

It stood twenty feet into the air
Arched like a rainbow in the sky
And as the sleigh approached the site
Suddenly the Reindeer started to shy

They swerved this way and that way
Throwing Santa to the floor of the sleigh
They bobbed and twirled, got tangled up
Til not one was going the same way.

The Elves, tumbling over each other
Grabbed a trampoline from the shop
Screaming for Santa to jump
Til they heard a horrendous pop!

Santa dove from the sleigh as it landed
On the roof of the workshop shed
And Santa, poor Santa fell
In a snow bank right on his head

Mrs. Clause ran to him quickly
To make sure he was all right
The Elves stood watching in horror
Gasping with horrible fright

Santa rose from the snow slowly
And turned to his Elfin staff
Then suddenly everyone smiled
As Santa began to laugh!

They laughed til their sides hurt
As they gathered the mess they made
Ever after this night was known
As Santa’s Terrible Escapade!

ROFL
My favorit part is the end when the elfs get tangeled and Santa falls on his head.

Thank you all for your comments. I had the great pleasure to speak to Mikey on ICQ last night and must tell you he is a wonderful young man! He is a poet in the making! I encourage you all to write a poem for his challenge as he is thrilled with the responses he gets! Michael has raised a sweet, loving boy and deserves a lot of credit - Mikey loves his dad that's for sure!    So I'm reissuing this challenge.. remember what it was like when you first started to write poetry...someone encouraged you! Let's encourage Mikey! The Moderator of the future!
