I was tootling around minding my own business today when this poem suddenly popped into my head and I found myself more than a little startled by the fact that I was able to remember it very nearly word-for-word. (Well, OK, there was one line I blanked on and had to look up.) So, I thought I'd share:


No one's hangin' stockin's up,
No one's bakin' pie,
No one's lookin' up to see
A new star in the sky.
No one's talkin' brotherhood,
No one's givin' gifts,
And no one loves a Christmas tree
On March the twenty-fifth.

--Shel Silverstein

Peace on Earth and happy March 25th to all!
