January Briefing of the CTU* (* Christmas Tree Union)

Stand up! Stand tall!

It’s time to fight!

We Christmas trees

Must all unite!

They praise our looks,

They stand and sing,

They give us gifts

And bits of bling,

They give us stars

And jewels and gold,

But then they say

We’re much too old;

We’ve lost our looks,

We’re past our prime.

They claim (when it’s

Not Christmas time)

They have the right

To strip our sweets,

And simply chuck us

On the streets.

You Fir Tree! Pine Tree!

Norway Spruce!

Don’t stand for this

Most cruel abuse!

This moral outrage

Must be stopped!

We thus demand that

When we’re chopped

We never suffer

Such neglect.

We must be treated

With respect.

And if our cause

Is not addressed

We’ll march, campaign

Revolt, protest.

We want tinsel!

We want lights!

We want baubles!

Give us rights!

Treat us kindly

All the year.

Or else we’ll riot.

Is that clear?

Stand up! Stand tall!

It’s time to fight!

We Christmas trees

Must all unite!
