Was the night before Christmas

When I got his text

That Santa would visit me

‘Round planet (convexed)

No longer he’s guided

By stars (lots of guess)

Tech reps have caught up with him

Now has GPS

(meter changes)

I’m waiting here for Santa

It’s three o’clock in morn

(I’m yawning now but never mind)

He said he’d come by dawn

Then just before I nodded off

He came through door (not chim)

Looking quite bedraggled

Had lost his phone (with SIM)

I added two and two together

Yes, came up with four

Linda’s house across the street

Had lights on, open door

Santa makes a special trip all the way each Christmas to see me.

I must mean something special to him…..
