Santa at The Training Foundation

by | Dec 20, 2007 | Poetry | 0 comments

A bump in the library and a cloud of thick soot
Santa has landed and dusts off his boots
He stands tall and smiling all sooty and fine
In the reddest of suits with a buckle that shines

In The Training Foundation he finds himself now
With presents for all to make them go “Wow”
He walks up the stairs to see all up there
He walks into sales saying “Good Morning Claire”

There’s loads for the sales team for boys and for girls
Straighteners for ladies to keep away curls
For boys he brings other things glass and quite strong
(A case of good booze to last the night long)

And then there’s the admin the glue of the team
Bringing them prezzies to make their eyes gleam
For all those e-tutors he brings gifts for too
Gifts of e-Christmas for all the e-crew

For the trainers he struggles he’s not sure at all
There’s activists, theorists both wee and quite tall
Who try to help learners some “oooh” and some great
So he gives them nice learners for 2008

Then for the ones who author our book
Nick and his helpers like Adrian Snook
Now Santa thought hard about what he should give
These men of great thinking quite innovative

He thought about this and yes even that too
and eventually decided on just what to do
He gave them next year filled with joy and success
With a Foundation Team that is truly the best!

A Merry Christmas to you all
