Santa and Satan

On a misty daybreak of cold December
Amidst jingle bells and joyous laughter
With a sack packed with surprise presents
For the happiness of the blossomy young
An old man with a snow white beard
Arrived on breezy reindeer sledge!
With hysterical look and uncertain step
And a back pack full of ugly unknowns
For the bitter grief of the pious innocents
A young man wearing a jet black beard
Wedged through the crowds at the church
On a satanic morn of that doomed April!
