Shoe Laces, Hula Girls, And Christmas Trees


By Roseanne Jordan Largent

It came upon a cold dreary night 
while Santa was dancing by the 
warm firelight. 
The Christmas tree was dressed 
in the most peculiar of ways, 
There were shoelaces for garland 
along with pearls and lace 
Then, for some strange reason, 
there were hula girls dancing 
with smiles on their face. 
Old Santa was laughing so hard when he saw 
what those funny li'l elves had done after all; 
He gave them a raise and a jolly good cheer 
and told them to all have a Happy New Year.
