This is the worst day of the year for Christmas trees.

There is tragedy everywhere

A great number face their end alone.

While many just end up on the streets.

For some, the end is gruesome

Or bloody

Some are simply cut down in their prime

For all Christmas trees, this day must come

But perhaps saddest of all are those that meet their end before they’ve even had a chance to shine.

Christmas trees, we salute you. You have done us some service.
