Tight Fit

Tight Fit

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Santa had been avoiding his diet

And now couldn’t fit into his suit

Every time that he attempted to try it

There was a serious waistline dispute


Bread went first, then sweet cinnamon buns

Although chocolate remained a head turner

Every morning he persevered with jogging runs

Hoping to get rid of his great afterburner


After two weeks of a conflicting regime

Where in every dream he’d scream for whip cream

He had expanded even that much further

Snacking extra cake and candy where seen


So, Mrs. Clause fashioned him a new suit

But Santa’s problems have not all gone away

There is now a pause in the Christmas commute

Cause he can no longer fit into the sleigh

Everyone's gotten the covid spread, so they complain constantly on Facebook! Everyone's blaming it on being sequestered, so why can't Santa? I love JtheB's comment. Me being a home-baked bread fiend who could care less about chocolate, I'm questioning Santa's dieting priorities. After a couple months of extreme pain, I've been feeling pretty good for a week, so I almost went for a walk yesterday, but then it rained. Nice thing about a wheelchair -- the wheels carve a few inches off my hips & thighs if I get so wide there's no clearance! *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie
