Dear Neighbor...

Here it is, the twenty-sixth, Christmas has come and gone
Time to take the decorations out of your front lawn

It's not that I don't appreciated the manger and the hay
I'm warding off them being here on baseball's opening day

I like the inflatable snowman and the twinkling icicle lights
And how it gives the luster of midday through all our December nights

I grin at the endless Peanuts® loop projected on your garage door
And the bass-heavy Mannheim Steamroller that rattles my kitchen floor

I like it all! I celebrate! No "Humbug" will you hear!
But could you please just take it down before spring thaw this year?
