Wanted: Christmas Cheer (poem)


Got my Christmas tree up, the leaves not yet set

Still don’t have the Christmassy spirit quite yet

Just watching my tree with its perfect form

Does nothing to make me feel fuzzy and warm

Play carols throughout the whole night and all day

Still don’t think that Santa’ll be coming my way

It’s not like I’ve ever been even once bad

There just won’t be presents at all to be had

The season just makes me incredibly sad

I can’t think of anything to make me more glad

So if you already have your Christmas cheer

A little thrown my way might just make my year.
