Reindeer Poop Poem

Christmas is coming
along with Santa's reindeer.
Listen closely on Christmas Eve
and maybe you'll hear.
While Santa leaves gifts
tied with ribbons and bows
the reindeer leave droppings
in neat little rows.

Santa checked his list not once, but twice
and found you've been naughty, and not very nice.
Since coal is expensive, here's the scoop -
he's filled your stocking with reindeer poop!

I heard you've been naughty,
so here's the scoop.
All you get for Christmas this year
is reindeer poop.
