CHRISTMAS IN JULY?!?!


I looked outside my house; heard mischief in the yard!
Could not believe my eyes--just couldn't disregard
the festive lot of stuff just occupying space,,
and I don't need to say that it was OUT OF PLACE!
For, in my once-neat yard were decorations, vast.
Did not know where they're from, and I was fuming, fast.
Was not prepared, you see, for Christmas in JULY.
I had ENOUGH last year; this made me want to cry!
The characters were there--they even brought a wreath!
It really was a shock--it made me grind my teeth!
There was a tiny elf, atop a tall reindeer,
led on by a snowman; he wouldn't let me near!
I found myself enraged; I took right to my bed
and left my visitors for a good book, instead!
