There’s a jingle of bells where the grass still is green.
There’s a stiff shiny tree that seems somehow obscene.
There are icicles hung where the dust devils feud.
There are deer on the roof where no chimneys protrude.
For we who dwell beyond the western range feel the change
That is rung throughout the shopping malls,
And drummed into our heads.
But there’s too much sold and too much tossed,
Too much bought at too much cost
To think that they would let it fade away,
Just fade away.
There are lights peering down from the palm trees and such.
There is frost on the window that’s warm to the touch.
There’s a slim Santa Claus with a tan parlor tan.
There are toys in the stockings, flown in from Japan.
