Santa Gets Cleared by the World Health Organization

All is calm; all is bright
at the North Pole,
where Santa,
it has been reported,
is immune to the virus
and ready for takeoff.

The big man and elfin team
are working in earnest,
getting ready to load the sleigh,
hitch up the reindeer
and make their worldly rounds.

No one knows if he’ll wear a mask,
but his is a solo act.  And he’s a champion
social distancer, able to slip presents
undetected under brightly lit trees.

It’s official:

This jolly fellow,
stealthier than any virus,
who circumnavigates the globe
in one night, will fly his annual journey
as always, leaving the greatest of gifts
under every tree—peace and joy and love—
this year delivered with extra helpings
of hope.
