'Welcome To The Real World' - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory

‘Welcome to the real world’

You should have read between the lines
If you did, you wouldn’t cry
Inside the suit was a real man
Who like all of us, would eventually die

Please remember to read the fine print
There is no such thing as Santa Claus
The man in the suit was real
Like every one of us he had his flaws

I know how you feel
Your young, you still believe in Santa Claus
But if you had, read the small print
You would have seen it's Satan’s clause

Adults want you to have something to believe
It’s the lesser of two evils
Your nice and quiet when you play with your toys
Santa claus is really the devil

He lulls you into a false sense of happiness
Then he pulls away the rug
You become a disillusioned youth
Now your one of his thugs

Santa is an anagram of Satan
Welcome to the real world…………
