Taking down the Christmas tree
The most effective way to see
The needles flinging off the tree
Would simply be to set it free
From living room captivity.
Stripped of all of its décor,
We’ll try to get it out the door
Leaving memories once more,
As treeless needles on the floor.

Interesting poem. I like the way the poem is constructed. 😀 Interesting. Is unforunetely a sad theme. Sad, but profund.
Thanks for stopping by, glad it caught your interest.
I like this, because it captures a feeling I have felt every year I had a real tree. Unfortunately I just have a BOX OF CHRISTMAS TREE left in the room and I think the unwillingness of others to help me with it is kind of a indication of sadness captured in this poem One more year done! Sigh.
I can so relate to this. I can almost hear the frustration and a little sarcasm in the words you use. Love it.
