Atnas the bad, mysterious, sly
Travels the world on his sleigh in the sky.
Santa's old friend, now inglorious foe,
This age old story is something to know:
They started out well, as partners in crime
Until one Christmas when Atnas got time.
Santa and Atnas were felons you see,
They robbed, plundered, stole - things so dastardly.
The plans were devised and thought out by Old Nick
As getaway driver he drove oh so quick.
The strong and fit Atnas brought life to the schemes,
And there was the set up of our daring team.
Their usual targets were the rich, banks and stores,
"We have little money, you won't miss some of yours"
This was the thought behind Santa's bad ways
(And he says he'll regret for the rest of his days).
Atnas was greedy, unbelievably so!
He suggested stealing from children, but Santa said no.
They argued and argued 'til blue in the face
Santa shot off enraged but Atnas gave chase
They flew round the world at neck breaking speed
Shouting and bawling but neither'd concede
Then Santa hatched a magnificent plan
To go straight and get rid of this odious man.
He stopped in his tracks and pretended to think
And then said "I've got it!" with a grin and a wink
"We'll go to each house with a naughty young child
And steal all their presents!" Atnas then smiled.
The two men shook hands and began to prepare
Then Santa snuck out with such silence and care.
He went to the lawmen and confessed their tale
They agreed that Atnas needed putting in jail.
They discussed the details for the next night
With Santa relieved he was at last doing right.
He crept back home so as not to upset
Atnas' deep sleep and then started to fret.
When the next day arrived Santa felt really quite ill
But the plan all went well, they caught Atnas with skill.
They turned to Santa, increasingly nervous,
And said for his help he got community service.
Every year at Christmas instead of stealing from kids
He had to give them all gifts if they'd been good that is.
Santa was calmed, he liked that idea
Then swiftly recruited his trademark reindeer
And so that's how Santa first got his commission
But alas! This summer Atnas escaped from his prison,
So you'd better be good because if not its doubtless
That you'll get a visit from Santa's foe Atnas!
