Look who’s writing to Santa!
December 2, 2013
Dear Father Christmas,
I haven’t got a stocking,
I’ve never had a chimney,
Nor a door for knocking.
There’s nowhere for your reindeer
To land without a roof,
In any case they’d have to swim –
Are reindeer waterproof?
Your sleigh will be no use at all,
You’ll need a submarine
Or a snorkel and some flippers
Or something in between.
But still I’ve made a Christmas wish
And hope that you will call:
I’d like a brand new pearly comb
And soft new sponge – that’s all.
I’ve left a shell of seaweed wine;
Sand-pies you mustn’t miss
To wish you Merry Christmas
Love, Mermaid. X X X
