Gourmet Reindeer Poop
I woke up with such scare when I heard Santa call... "Now dash away,
dash away, dash away all!" I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts."
I got an old shovel and started to scoop, neat little piles of "Reindeer
Poop!" But to throw them away, seemed such a waste, so I saved them,
thinking-you might like a taste!
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile, Old Santa, passed by and he
sheepishly smiled. And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky... "Well
they're not potty trained, but at least they can fly!"
