Space Santa

Now he came well recommended.
So the future brought him along,
to keep tradition extended,
but mostly that hope fill their song.

Yes they’re going to need his joy,
to grace and fill their data base.
It’s boredom that likes a new toy,
and they must keep busy in space.

But can reindeers out last light-years?
Will darkness of space bring new ways?
Will frozen sleep chill-out their cheers?
Will hearts re-started warm their days?

My guess is that they’ll keep Santa,
Thanksgiving and Valentines too.
They’ll need their holiday banter
that the best of Earth may smile through.
