Santa Claws Is Coming To Town

Santa Claws Is Coming To Town

 

By Elton Camp



Every year when Santa makes his annual trip

The season and its traditions some need to skip



The significant financial drain that it does create

Have caused many the holiday season to berate



For it is financially that they will be floored

Due to buying gifts that they can ill afford



“Joe buys an expensive gift for me every year.

Unless I get him one, he’ll be offended I fear.”



The hapless victim figures how much to spend

And thus get through gift-giving season again



Giving gifts freely is what people should do

And certainly not because they are expected to



Greedy big business is largely the one to blame

For the monster that holiday season became



I know, to some, this poem won’t be a pleaser

And they will attack and even call me Ebenezer



But “Bah, humbug” is a pretty good thing to say

About what has become a crassly commercial day

Hey Scrooge! Why are you and I the only ones posting the Holiday Weekend ? Don't answer, it's rhetorical...
