Christmas Past

"Does Santa really exist," I once asked,
"Does St. Nick exist or is he a tale?
Has anyone ever seen him come passed?
Has anybody ever heard his bells?"

I see a lot of strange men in red suits.
Each of them claims to be the real St. Nick.
How is it that he wears different sized boots
And has a shiny, fake beard so white and thick?

Is he round from all the cookies and milk?
How does he slip in to chimneys at night?
Is his clothes made of cotton or of silk?
Isn't he a little heavy for flight?

If he breaks my roof, I would really fear
that I would chase Santa right out of here.
But the question remains: is Santa real?
You'll soon find out when I tell you next year.
