Under the Tree

by John Pillsbury
Christmas is coming- you can hear the registers ring

People are in the stores buying everything

The merchants wring their hands in glee- they think the whole thing funny

that people are filling credit cards- spending plastic money

Santa brings to the girls and boys boxes and boxes of Xmas toys

While Mom finds under the tree expensive furs and jewelry

But poor Dad- to his despair there's a passel of ties he'll never wear.
