Every year i get the job to carry out a six foot long Christmas tree,
boxed and stored away in the garage.next to a case of Chablis .
its been our tradition to set up and decorate the tree we all agree.
I string the lights the wife and kids hang the ornaments, whoopee!
we celebrate the grand lighting, with Christmas music from our MP3
hot chocolate with candy canes, for all a job well done we decree
how joyful and comforting it is to celebrate beside the Christmas tree
the birth of the new born king.

This poem transmits the perfect serenity we all should be granted on Christmas.

Just beautiful.

A brilliant poem, yet (without wanting to be harsh) I felt that 'whoopee' was more to force a rhyme then the rest which flows so naturally.  Otherwise, as I said, really brilliant!
