dying for Chrtistmas

The tree we cut
and carried
into our home

the one
we shackled
then
trimmed

sang to
then
toasted

now lays
in the gutter

her
hooks
and tinsel
riffling on the wind

  1. Preach on soldier. I see the poor adolescent sapling as the crucified sacrifice on the altar of the Christian Redeemer complex. Why should these Gaian arbor soldiers be forcefully uprooted, sold to the soulless materialists, and crucified in a dying room ceremony? They have souls.

    Over 100 million of these soldiers are severed from mother earth each year. It seems ironic that we have a non profit organization dedicated to planting trees.
