Two Trees up or Two Trees Down?



Twas the day after thanksgiving, 
the whole world was shopping.
I said to myself, I am not stopping
Not even for mopping,
until that Charlie Brown Tree
is standing tall and free
In The Nook.

I grabbed the bag from on high on the shelf,
thinking this is so easy, I don't even need an elf.
I sat staring and rocking,
thinking you all  might be mocking me
and my one cute, but tiny little  tree.




I ran my hands through my hair in despair,
and jumped right up from my rocking chair.
I grabbed for the bag with another small tree,
this was really easy you see,
The ornaments and lights, reside on this tree,
and is removed fully ready, to be plugged in by 
ME.

So now you have to decide. 
Try not to be snide.

Did MadSnapper 
Put two trees up, or is she 2 trees down?
I hope this leaves you with nary a frown.,

I'm guessing you put up two trees. The little Charlie Brown one, and another one with lots of decorations.

You are so clever with your words!I love both of your trees! And I have a Charlie Brown tree AND a mini, total decorated tint tree, too!!

Two Trees is my guess. But I say..."The more the MERRY-er!!!!"

Ann said...

You are two trees up. Can you get down with that?...lol I like them both. I have all my decorations pulled out but it's a bit overwhelming with all that I have. I don't know if all of it will come out or not.

Gosh, I hope you had half as much fun writing this as I did reading it! I'm guessing 2 trees UP.
Years ago I bought one similar to your #2; and loved the idea of just plugging it in. Probably an unpopular opinion, but I really don't like having to decorate a Christmas tree.

I am not worrying about what you did or did not do
I'm just so proud to know a poet like you!

Whether one or two trees, you always get very nice effects with the mirrors and lights in your nook...

I have to admit that the Charlie Brown tree is my absolute favorite...seems I am always for the Underdog...
Love both but #1 gets my vote.Maybe tomorrow I'll get started on our tree.
If it stops raining Dave will put up the outside lights. Don't see that happening today though.
You definitely are a master poet too.

You are a poet and don't know it.

I think you put up two trees and they are perfect!

Lovely trees. I didn't go out on black friday.
Coffee is on

We did not go out on Black Friday and didn't do any online shopping either. We're keeping a low-key holiday. We won't be putting up a tree inside, but I made a pine cone tree for outside the apt and will show in a future post. We also have a charlie brown tree and that may go up in our village this year. I think you had 2 trees and I really liked the story in rhyme, Sandra. It was very clever and fun to read.
