Beginning to look a lot like…shit?

The Christmas tree is now erect
but mostly dark,
having spent too much time
boxed up
out of sight.
Its feelings were hurt.
It has given up on life
and now lives the miserable existence
of a depressed shut-in
not really trying
because no one really cares anyway.
He will surely spend the holidays
alone.

Of course
his evergreen apathy
will not end well for him.
It has already been noted
by The Boss
and she seemed pretty pissed.
She spent over an hour
twisting bulbs
jiggling wires
cursing loudly.
If this tree doesn’t
shape
the
fuck
up
he’ll be trash
in January.

Perhaps it’s only appropriate
to have a half-functional tree
given my personal thoughts about
decorating
Santa
the holiday in general.
It makes the whole thing seem
more ridiculous
grotesque
a mockery of tradition
perfect
