The Christmas Tree is waiting

In the basement, in a box.

Impatiently, excitedly.

"Any day now, any day!!

They'll come and carry me upstairs!!

They'll stand me up and string me full of lights!!

They'll coat me in tinsel, hang ornaments!!

They'll slip wrapped presents under me, oh joy!!"

....

But upstairs, the couple, not quite so young anymore

As they were when this used thing was gifted to them

Are signing for a delivery.

The new tree has arrived.

To at last replace the old.
