The Santa Gender Mind Bender
Ever since the very first tales of Santa began,
All have assumed that Santa’s a man.
Listen here: You may find it odd—
But I’m willing to bet that Santa’s a broad!
The gifts kids receive---all picked by a guy?
The same species that’s been known to buy
Their holiday gifts on Christmas Eve?
A plan-ahead- dude is hard to believe!
I suppose the elves could do all that wrapping—
We know for sure, a guy would be napping.
Would then he deliver his selections,
Without stopping once to ask for directions?
Fat chance of that, I would have to say;
With no GPS until recent day!
Do you know any man who’d admit being lost?
They’re way too stubborn, regardless the cost!
Then there’s the usual cookies and milk—
Would most guys be happy with things of that ilk?
No, I think not. Here’s what I fear,
If Santa’s a man, he’d want pretzels and beer!
Just give it some thought
And I’m sure you’ll agree:
No way it’s a man—
Santa must be a SHE!
(an original poem by Eva Gallant)
