Santa’s New Team

Christmas Eve was coming
There was plenty to be done
There were protocols to follow
There were programs to be run

Presents needed wrapping
Elves had duties of their own
They’ve been doing it for centuries
They could call Christmas in by phone

Reindeer games were scheduled
Christmas Carols to be sung
There were toys to be assembled
There were bells that must be wrung

Christmas Cakes…no problem
For we all know there’s just one
It gets passed around each Christmas
And that is half the fun

But, back now to the reindeer games
Donner wasn’t there
But, neither were three others
It gave Santa Claus a scare

He called the elven vet in
Said “find out what it wrong”
“If I don’t have all my reindeer”
“It’ll ruin Rudolph’s song”

The vet came back directly
Hoof and mouth was what he said
The reindeer must  miss Christmas
They were all confined to bed

Santa couldn’t take it
Reindeer home…what would he do?
He thought real hard about an answer
Where would he find something that flew

The vet said, “I’ve an answer”
“But, no questions…just your trust”
“I’ll get your gifts delivered Santa”
“I just need your magic dust”

Santa said “do your best Doctor”
“We can’t have Christmas end like this”
“Are you sure you have an answer?”
“We can’t give Christmas time a miss”

The vet and elves went searching
They formed a team like none before
They went around to the animals
And then they knocked on Santa’s door

Santa looked at what they’d brought him
His reindeer gone, but here they stood
A team had been assembled
It made Santa sink into his hood

Harnessed up before him
The vet had two dogs and a bear
A beaver, goat, and donkey
And a bald, blind cat…stood there

He smiled and said “Dear Santa”
“They may not look like that much now”
“But, they’ll get you where you need to be”
“And they’ll be led by a brown cow”

If you hear some noises
From your roof, like bleats and barks
Some, meowing or some mooing
And other strange sounds in the dark

Remember, it’s just Santa
With his new team for the season
Rex, Rolf, Billy, Ben, Bessie, Joe, and Mike
and a bald, blind cat who’s freezin’

Merry Christmas to all and to all….don’t look up!!
