“Santa” by Mike Pihlman
I asked for, and got, my Christmas wish….
A shiny new 12 gauge shotgun…
I was admiring my new present when I heard such a clatter….
The noise was louder than most and I was concerned about a burglar….
But I was ready…
I saw a flash in the fireplace….
Oooops….hey, kiddies, there is no Santa…..anymore.
