He sat in a chair
At the center of the store.
He worked from 9 to 5,
Who could ask for more?

The long line of children
Took turns and some twists,
As most waited patiently
To read Santa their lists.

A life-sized doll
With a head full of curls
Seemed to be wanted
By most of the girls.

But anything at all
That made lots of noise
Was the thing most requested
By most all of the boys.

But one little fellow
Stood at Santa's side
He wiggled and squirmed
As if he couldn't decide.

But at last he told Santa.
In a quiet, firm voice,
That he'd made up his mind
And this was his choice.

"Give food to the hungry,
Give clothes to the cold,
To the fighting give peace,
To the meek, make them bold."

"Make the sick feel well,
For the weak, make them stout,
'Cause isn't that what Christmas
Is supposed to be about!"

As Santa looked down
With a twinkle and a tear,
This child had told him
What he wanted to hear.

Santa's laugh got more jolly
As he chuckled with glee.
Odd behavior for a "store Santa"
Or was he what you see?
