Dearest Santa,
you with your reindeer wiles,
you know not of real challenges
and holiday trials.

Plan, you might
delivering gifts with glee,
but you’ve not designed
the kitty-proof Christmas tree.

Stockings, wreaths,
less fun than branches.
The night’s tolling tree bells
forewarning disaster.

Those twinkling lights?
They’re the electric sputtering.
And that star on top,
it’s what kitty’s treasuring.

This day you claim
because you’re the Claus,
belongs to Christmas kitties
and their trees of claws.
