Slaughter of the Christmas Trees

Slaughter of the Christmas Trees

A Poem by Omikron
"

A poem from my "25 days until Christmas" collection, for a contest.

"
"Slaughter of the Christmas Trees"
The crows are quiet, not a sound to be heard
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
The wind blows quietly and carries the message:
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
A forest decapitated, while the children sing
I's the slaughter of the christmas trees
It's the eve of the fallen, celebration of death
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Silent soldiers with arms tied to their spine
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Run for the next bargain, victims of your choice
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Add an ornament and let there be light
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Distract the guests from the corpse beneath the frill
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Let the cone-bearing wretch be to your pleasure
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees
Hang it up, chop it down, it's just a tree, throw it out
It's the slaughter of the christmas trees

I wish I have seen this one before. It's great! Why has no one commented. Before I forget, check your 6th line, first word. I had never considered the chopping of trees in this way before, how it could be hurting our environment. I get a real tree every year from a tree farm that plants new trees to replace ones chopped down but as a whole I'm not sure how the industry works. Poor trees though. I love how you took something jolly and festive and turned it into something dark.
