Unhappy Santa

Unhappy Santa

written by: Dawn DeBraal

 

The night before Christmas. At Waldman-Coast’s store,
Santa had had it. His patience was, wore.
Mom raised her camera, “Smile kids. Quick”!
All that we heard was one little click.
Several days later, the film had revealed.
An unhappy Santa, so out of his field.
Mother was sad. Her vision was marred.
She wouldn’t put Santa on our Christmas Card
We never went back to Waldman’s again,
For that unhappy Santa wasn’t our friend.
At Christmas, we think about that dear old chap.
Is he still playing Santa? Or is he taking a nap?
