Santa's (Temporary) Solution

Santa claws at windows, doors,
And lots of other places,
He can't get in, the gap's too thin,
What disappointed faces
Will greet the dawn as, all forlorn,
They find their empty stockings
Still hanging there, untouched and bare,
The very thought was shocking!

But our St. Nick is not so thick,
He cracked this one, by Jiminy,
For since that night he's found it's right
To come in down the chimney.

P.S. - Since then he's stumped again,
He's taken quite a beating
Since mankind tired of open fires
And took to central heating!
