A Christmas Poem

A poem by Chris Green called 'Christmas Tree Lots':

Christmas trees lined like war refugees,
a fallen army made to stand in their greens.
Cut down at the foot, on their last leg,

they pull themselves up, arms raised.
We drop them like wood;
tied, they are driven through the streets,

dragged through the door, cornered
in a room, given a single blanket,
only water to drink, surrounded by joy.

Forced to wear a gaudy gold star,
to surrender their pride,
they do their best to look alive.


  1. The Tissot Classic Dream Watch is synonymous with style and fashion. Large numbers on the face of Tissot Watches make it easy to read the time even in deficient light. The black leather strap lends the added touch of perfection. Owning a masterpiece like Tissot Ladies Watches is very much within the limits.

  2. Indeed, a poem of great magnitude.. just what i sometimes think about the Christmas trees...
    Thanks. Thanks a lot.

  3. Somehow this made me glad we have a artificial tree at home. But it is a great poem.

  4. Aww, the christmas poem was great (and those blinking light of the tree is tooo pretty ). Love it. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Holidays,

  11. It is vital in these days to have a social media presence. Many businesses overlook this necessity for future growth. It may be more important than putting in more funding. Pricing properly is key, of course. But investing more is not always the best option. Sometimes it’s better to cut unnecessary costs.
