Editing A Difficult Thing

When tact is required

and you want to be honest

You have to find a way to do both

Telling a child

that Santa won’t be coming

to leave them a present

is something they refuse to believe.

Still, you try to prepare them

and make do with the little you have.

Christmas is a time for family

and when your beliefs never included

the jolly fat guy

it is hard to be respectful for your child.
