It's nearly February and they're still there


Those Horrible Christmas Decorations

By Elton Camp

I’ve never put up a single one of ’em
But some neighbors did a ton of ’em

Garish, flashing lights of red & green
The most tacky that I’ve ever seen

Fake icicles hanging from the eave
Are almost too cheesy to believe

Plastic reindeer on the front lawn
A puff of wind and they are gone

A dirty, green garland draped on the fence
Makes me wish the neighbors were hence

Then there’s the faded, plastic Santa Claus
Surely it’s a violation of some zoning laws

What makes me, in disbelief, now stare
It’s nearly February and they’re still there

Oh, if only, when the trash man next ran
I’d see ‘em peeking out of the garbage can
