To Decorate Or Not?

A time of cheer
and to decorate
hearth and home
No hearth you say?
No worries at all,
now you can purchase
one on eBay!

Unbox the lights
old ones and new
Either or both
tangled tight
as a screw!
Blinking or not
whatever is one to do?

Multi-colored brightness
full of rainbow delight
Maybe clear bulbs instead
turning the landscape to
a glowing pearly white
Virgin snow or sweeping sand
dunes to make everything right!

This creaky aged body
must fight for every move
each step is a torment
walking a laborious chore
I think I’ll just wait
until this time next year
to decorate!
