If you like sliding down chimneys and you don’t mind being pulled by a Deer.

I know of a job you can apply for that will be available soon this year.

You must like spreading joy and laughter and you’ll need a beard that’s white.

The rest of your appearance is not important, but you can’t give the children a fright!

Please report to Lapland with my blessing and make friends with the elves that are there.

You have almost a month before they’ll need you so watch carefully in the corner from a chair!

Come Christmas Eve you’ll be busy as there are miles that you must go,

But worry not Mr Santa as Rudolf travels fast not slow.

Do not eat too much of the offerings nor drink too much of the wine.

Please be careful on reading the labels and make sure you deliver what’s mine!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
