Usually I just drink some booze and sit around like a lump
But this year I've decided to not be such a grump.
I've rounded up my Christmas decorations, from the damp
And have hung them cheerily on the Christmas floor lamp.
Season's Greetings from a pigeon (who's disguised as a Christmas tree)
And Best Wishes from another bird (a robin?) who's boxed in by imaginary worms of ennui
A fake Santa ant says Ho Ho Ho
And an old glove, or rag, or something, has dressed up like a famous reindeer (whose name I think you know)
A silly dog wishes you A Very Merry Christmas, and that's a fact!
And a snail sends warm wishes (though lately he's been becoming generally more and more abstract)
A mother snake and a baby snake send their love
And two fat guys send Christmas Wishes from the "Serpentine Water Trap" hole of a miniature golf course (viewed here from above)
Season's Greetings from that rarity, a horse tadpole
And Best Wishes from a mother horse, and her foal
A Friendly Nod to you! from a jaunty twenty-four-chinned man, who is wearing an Advent cravat
And Season's Greetings from a hideous-looking (but nice) creature who is wearing a Christmas hat
Best Wishes from the Monument To Camaraderie
And a shout out from a Yo-yo tree (oh, but this is just faddery!)
If you look down, you will see a mole sending Christmas Wishes to you
Happy Holidays from a certain bright-nosed reindeer (I think you know who)
Season's Greetings from a cucumber and a leech . . .
I found them in November, on the beach
And Merry Christmas from three partridges in a pear tree
(One is no longer good enough, there have to be three)
Happy New Year from an elephant who is humping a pickup truck
