Ho, ho, ho, it’s Christmas yet again,
But in line with new protocols,
I’m implementing social distancing.
Split shifts on the Christmas line,
One and a half reindeers apart please,
Hey Elf one, was that a sneeze?
And ensure you use hand sanitizer,
Yes Dasher, on arrival and after breaks,
It’s vital, for heavens sakes.
And Elves no sharing tools, no sharing anything,
And if you’re feeling ill at all,
Please don’t come in and please toss tissues in the bin.
What? Recompense for lost shifts?
Please, who do you think I am?
If you want to negotiate, Santa just ain’t in.
