Christmas Cookies

“Masks again this year.”
Santa complained to the elves.
“No snacks at their house.”

Mrs. Claus came in.
“Here are insulated bags,
filled with warm cookies.”

“There’s enough for all.
Take thermoses with cocoa.
Start packing that sleigh.”

“Harness the reindeer.
Get dressed in your best red suit.
It’s now Christmas Eve!”
