Funny Christmas Poems: The Night After Christmas

by Anne P. L. Field revised by Kristina Harding

Twas the night after Christmas in Santa-Claus land

And to rest from his labors St. Nicholas planned.

The reindeer were turned out to pasture and all

The ten thousand assistants discharged till the fall.

The furry great-coat was laid safely away

With the boots and the cap with its tassel so gay,

And toasting his toes by a merry wood fire,

What more could a weary old Santa desire?

So he puffed at his pipe and remarked to his wife,

"This amply makes up for my strenuous life!

From climbing down chimneys my legs fairly ache,

But it's well worth the while for the dear children's sake.

I'd bruise every bone in my body to see

The darlings' delight in a gift-laden tree!"

Just then came a sound like a telephone bell—

Though why they should have such a thing I can't tell—

St. Nick gave a snort and exclaimed in a rage,

"Bad luck to inventions of this modern age!"

He grabbed the receiver—his face wore a frown

As he roared in the mouth-piece, "I will not come down

To exchange any toys like an up-to-date store,

Ring off, I'll not listen to anything more!"

Then he settled himself by the comforting blaze

And waxed reminiscent of halcyon days

When children were happy with simplest of toys:

A doll for the girls and a drum for the boys—

But again came that noisy disturber of peace

The telephone bell—would the sound never cease?

"Run and answer it, wife, all my patience has fled,

If they keep this thing up I shall wish I were dead!

I have worked night and day the best part of a year

To supply all the children, and what do I hear—

A boy who declares he received roller-skates

When he wanted a gun—and a cross girl who states

That she asked for a new fancy talking machine

And I brought her a sled, so she thinks I am 'mean!'"

The telephone wire was kept sizzling hot

By children disgusted with presents they'd got,

And when the bright sun showed its face in the sky

The Santa-Claus family were ready to cry!

Now, when you try and call Santa-Claus land

They'll say disconnected—and you'll understand.
