I Peaked Through The Keyhole On Christmas Eve

I Peaked Through The Keyhole On Christmas Eve

I peaked through the keyhole,
Of my parent’s door.
Placed a wooden box,
To reach up from the floor.

At first I was very curious,
Because I wanted to know.
Why mommy was wrapped up,
In a blanket and outside no snow.

I saw daddy rubbing his tummy,
Like it was very unset.
Then I heard mommy speak,
“Don’t worry, I know what to get.”

She jumped out of the bed,
And I heard the blanket drop.
Then there was this silence,
Like they just both stopped.

I heard some heavy breathing,
Coming from inside their room.
No doubt it was my mother,
Sweeping with her electric broom.

Next I saw my father sweating,
Just all over himself,
I think he was lifting heavy boxes,
Way up in some high shelves.

Suddenly they heard me snooping,
When the wooden box tipped over.
Then that lady spoke very loudly,
“Quick, hide that shiny lawnmower!”

I panicked and got really scarred,
So I hurried up and ran to my room.
I knew they would follow,
And be at my door very soon.

I could hear their noisy steps running,
While tightening my pajamas that came loose.
And when my parents did open the door,
I pretended that I was awaking for a long snooze.

They looked at my face,
Straight into my eyes.
Then both in unison said,
“We can’t keep telling lies.”

“This year Santa came early,
And brought us all some toys.”
I no longer doubt my parents,
Those presents brought us all joys.

Artist's Description

As little children don’t we always wanted to know how Santa brought the presents into the house and he never got caught. Well, this little boy thinks he can find the answers and doesn’t realize what all the commmotion is all about. If you are an adult, you just might see the interpretation is little different way.
