Bilingual reindeer
David Alexander Jackson

Katie Price
Had a collection
Of last season's
Which she indexed
With the help
Of a sincere
Bilingual reindeer
Dressed in spandex
Who for some reason
Was single.

Is so important to me
Said Katie.

So they were labelled
And kept in taxis
At disused angle grinder factories
Near the Tower of Babel
So posterity
Would be able
To analyse
The finer points
Of her physiognomy.

Quite an unusual praxis
And something of an anomaly
For someone like me
Wouldn't you agree?

Cross my heart
And hope to die
I agree.

These are the days that Reindeer love
Emily Dickinson


These are the days that Reindeer love
And pranks the Northern star—
This is the Sun’s objective,
And Finland of the Year.

Yee hee hee hee haw
ha ha ha ha ha
the old Laughing Santa wished
íFeliz Navidad!

with his eight little reindeers, carrying the sleigh
he came swiftly, flying our way
sleigh bells ringing, whooshing through the snow
his sturdy little reindeers, rushed in a row
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen
Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen
they swoosh and crash and dash and scoot
they bolt so fast, and look so cute
children singing and dancing with joy
as he showers some glitters of happiness in sky

It's an occasion of celebration
there's no room for sadness
let's spread the joy by doing
a random act of kindness

Yee hee hee hee haw
ha ha ha ha ha
the old Laughing Santa wished
íFeliz Navidad!

**The most famous reindeer of all?**
Creep that Loves You

"You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and cupid and Donner and Blitzen,
But do you recall?
The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Has a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows.
All of the other reindeers
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Santa came to say,
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then all the reindeers loved him,
And they all shouted out with glee,
Rudolph the red-nose Reindeer
You'll go down in history!

Why is it that just because he
was asked for help by a celebrity (Santa)
and became associated with this celebrity,
all the other reindeer all of a sudden love him?

Doesn't that mean that the reindeers only love him
because he is now a celebrity
and not him as a reindeer?

humph :(
idk kinda noticed it...

i love to watch the reindeer  playing in the snow
Dec 11, 2013

i love to watch the reindeer  playing in the snow
antlers seem to glisten there eyes they seem to glow
with there heads held high having lots of fun
rubbing heads together in the winter sun
a beast with so much beauty running in the wild
i just love to watch this mother natures child

saying that Santa's reindeer

a message was received
from the far north pole
saying that Santa's reindeer
had been unkindly stole

he hopes to round up the rustled
four legged creatures very soon
so they can pull the red sleigh
and its Christmas load of boon

the time clock is running
down ever so quick
whereby he'll need a conveyance
that is exceptionally slick

fear not he'll deliver to every house
all over the earth's globe
never would the old man not
arrive without a pressie lobe

on getting his troop of antler
headed carriers mustered
he and they will be on the sky's trail
that is stellar clustered

it's starting to feel like positive tidings
before the twenty fifth day
as Santa is ready to do all drop offs
in his customary jolly way

The legend of our sweet Santa Claus
In December begins
Up on the rooftops, when eight strong paws
Make sounds of reindeers twins.

Santa had another noted name,
He was a simple man
Called Nicholas living for no fame.
He was a Christian.

His parents died, when he was still young,
In a village of Greece.
Thinking of Jesus, his thoughts he strung
To help poor kids in peace.

The legend of our sweet Santa Claus
In December begins
Up on the rooftops, when eight strong paws
Make sounds of reindeers twins.

Under Diocletian he became
A Bishop in mission.
He was imprisoned, and put to shame.
He changed the tradition.

In time, St. Nicholas' life and deeds
Have become a story.
He was a helper of those in needs,
A man in the glory.

The legend of our sweet Santa Claus
In December begins
Up on the rooftops, when eight strong paws
Make sounds of reindeers twins.

Nicholas became Dutch Sinter Klass,
But children changed his name.
The Bishop's red cloak changed with time's glass
In cloths for Santa's fame.

On that day, kids wait for him to come
In spirit of giving,
The Christmas tree looks no longer glum
And it looks like living.

The legend of our sweet Santa Claus
In December begins
Up on the rooftops, when eight strong paws
Make sounds of reindeers twins.

Down the chimney comes Papa Noel
Quite slipping and sliding.
From his sky with reindeers and sleigh bells
Just gnashing and gliding.

Spreading stardust glittering at night
He brings presents for kids,
They pray and sing in the Divine Light.
Then, to sky his sleigh skids.

The legend of our sweet Santa Claus
In December begins
Up on the rooftops, when eight strong paws
Make sounds of reindeers twins.

You know Dasher and Dancer
And Prancer and Vixen,
Comet and Cupid
And Donner and Blitzen,
Crasher and Crusher
And Gusher and Plasma,  
Windex and Wicked
And Jasper and Asthma,
Downer and Dagger
And Swagger and Snowflake,
Fudgenut and Fundip
And Moisture and Clambake.
Yet I can’t recall
Why we even know these names at all…

city to exchange his reindeer for buffalo.

Santa Claus went to New york
city to exchange his reindeer for buffalo.
Now his reindeer were so angry
that they soon started an army against him.
Santa Claus had the nerve to leave
all of them behind the fence with the buffalo.
He wasn't going to retire them all right away.
He left without saying this at all.
Dasher performed karate on the
buffalo's drum of a stomach fast as can be.
Dancer did the jitter bug one of
the buffalo's floor of a back to the breeze.
Prancer always copied dancer so
down came the buffalo on to the ground.
Vixen grunted a carol in one of
the buffalo's ears til eyes wild from sound.
Comet aimed for one buffalo's
head but only ran through his his legs.
Cupid bit in like a vampire on
one of the buffalo's neck and just smiled.
Donner was having dinner and
couldn't be fighting for his gift of the job.
Blitzen actually stabled a buffalo
in heart and committed murder at night.
The reindeer halted in horror
even Donner downing some of his carrots.
The reindeer made peace after
all this was not the season of the slaughter.
Santa Claus walked over to find
all of this and calmly buried the buffalo.
He said to them now he wasn't
going to change his mind he is just going
to use them every other holiday.
All the reindeer started to sigh away.
They all thanked God for the
Buffalo's miraculous patience.
From that day on Reindeer and Buffalo
work together every holiday.
Santa Claus changed his mind yet again
with a twinkle in his eyes.
Forgiveness was in the air.

And olive, the other reindeer
Roger Turner - Poet

We all know about Rudolph
and how his nose lights up the night
And olive, the other reindeer
Who help Santa with his flight

But, there's one who is forgotten
From the Christmas songs and rhymes
And I think you should hear about him
Yes, I think it is about time

Randy was a reindeer
He liked to play the reindeer games
But he too, was like Rudolph
And the others called him names

Randy, wasn't much at flying
Didn't like going out most nights
Randy, well, he was just different
You see, he was afraid of heights

He couldn't see where he was going
Either in the day or night
You see Randy needed glasses
He had a problem with his sight

His balance was in question
Always falling to the ground
If a reindeer falls in the forest
Does that reindeer make a sound?

He had a skin condition
He needed special cream to help
The harness didn't help him
In fact, it made him yelp

He was shorter than the others
And his stride was a bit off
And when Santa came to see him
Randy had a nervous cough

He didn't like the female reindeer
He liked the males, more than he should
Randy was "light up in the antlers"
And to Santa, that's no good

Santa couldn't fly with Randy
Randy's name, it was all wrong
It screamed out Broadway not of Christmas
It didn't work in all the songs

Santa said "you're a strange reindeer"
"You can't fly, you're blind and gay"
"And if you led my team out"
"We'd not be done in just one day"

"I'm sorry, reindeer Randy"
"I have to cut you from the team"
"They play one side,you're another"
"If you know what Santa means"

So, Randy, he just wanders
Round the north pole all the while
Bumping into things and falling
With his light antlers and strange smile

He's not a famous reindeer
And I think that it's ok
That Santa has a reindeer
Who, we now all know is gay.
