I Want an Advent Tree

This year for Christmas,
I think I want,
An Advent tree,
Something green and growing,
With expectations of receiving,
Less than ill defined stuff,
A tented logos,
Jammed between the trunk,
Hidden below the rough,
Among fallen needles,
Waiting for water,
In corners forsook.

–Richard Bryant
