The Christmas Police by Frank Esposito & Valeri Beers
The Christmas tree speeds like a fast car down the highway.
Its lights of red and blue flame through the night.
The Christmas police are pulling me over.
“Did you know you don’t have enough Christmas spirit, ma’am?”
I got a ticket for
not blaring Christmas music
not having my car stuffed with brightly wrapped presents
not having antlers & red nose on my car
half assed decorating
not enough baking
not enough cards
green bean casserole
rattling & tinkling
little white lies
no thank you
