Christmas Tree, Christmas Tree.



No prizes for guessing my post-Christmas state-of-mind.

Fell the Christmas tree

for us to dress

and pine-scent our homes

in weeks of Nativity. 


Discard the Christmas tree,

as January blows in

and the council men come

to clear the needled streets.


Forget the Christmas tree

as we start again

and media’s ‘Blue Monday’

brings the suicide spree.


Grow the Christmas tree

for us to dress,

pine-scent our homes

and delay unwelcome reverie.
