Goodbye Mr Claus

You've put on weight
Your diet's awful
Mince pies, sherry
Bowls of trifle

If you try one
More chimney stack
You're sure to have
A heart attack

So Mr Claus
You must retire
Relax, feet up
Beside the fire

And let the dads
Deliver toys
They've wanted to
Since they were boys

Fat Chance

Santa Claus is reaching the end of his working life and facing an enforced retirement. But who will take his place?
