Ho, ho, ho and hey, hey, hey,
Here comes Santa on his sleigh
This happy man has quite a task
Delivering what children ask
Here and there and in and out
When all is dark, no-one’s about
But nighttime's when the cars are there
On every street and every square
Finding spaces all takes time
In short supply as clocks they chime
Not every roof can take his sleigh
Imagine what those reindeer weigh
Parking then at night sometimes
Santa parks on double lines
They’ve made a change to the parking laws
I think it’s called the Santa Clause.

    Neville, nice rhyme and nice story.

    Despite the change in the laws
    I do hope that Santa Claus
    And his mighty reindeer sleigh
    Don’t cause a big traffic delay
    By double-parking next to an empty spot
    Because I really do hate that a lot.

    A great poem, Neville. I love the pun at the end.

    Thanks Ginette. Just a little seasonal froth, but fun to write nonetheless.

    Hmm, thought I'd commented on this earlier sorry. Love it Neville :) The end reminds me of the Marx Brothers "I don't believe in a sanity clause". A proper fun drabble!
