A Letter from Santa ClausSubmitted by Oyez on Tue, 12/31/2013 - 13:21
I am not sure that this is right place to post this, but I would like to share it and get it into the record somehow. This is the text of an anti-FDR verse which was around the house during the 40s and 50s. Someone had typed it up and it lived in the sideboard, in the silver drawer. I thought of it because it is the appropriate season.
A LETTER FROM SANTA CLAUS
I'm writing this letter to tell you
The New Deal has taken away
The things that I really needed:
My workshop, my reindeer, my sleigh.
But I'm making my rounds on a donkey;
He's old and crippled and slow.
So you'll know if I don't see you Christmas
That I'm out on my ass in the snow.
