He's had the chest pains for weeksA
but doctors don't make houseB
calls to the North PoleC
-
he's let his Blue Cross lapseD
blood tests make him faintE
hospital gown always flapF
-
open waiting rooms upsetG
his stomach and it's onlyH
indigestion anyway he thinksI
-
until feeding the reindeerJ
he feels as if a monster fistK
has grabbed his heart and won'tL
-
stop squeezing He can'tM
breathe and the beautiful whiteN
world he loves goes blackO
-
and he drops on his jelly bellyH
in the snow and Mrs ClausP
tears out of the toy factoryH
-
wailing and the elves wringQ
their little hands and Rudolph'sP
nose blinks like a sad ambulanceP
-
light and in a tract houseP
in Houston Texas I'mR
telling my mom that stupidS
-
kids at school say Santa's a bigT
fake and she sits with meH
on our purple flowered couchU
-
and takes my hand tearsP
in her throat the terribleV
news rising in her eyesP
