Earlier

I haven’t heard the songs yet But the trees are out for sale. The autumn goods are off the shelves And winter scenes prevail. The stores are filled with ornaments And ads are pushing toys. Salvation Army bells will soon Compete with city noise. It seems that every year The Christmas season gets here earlier, Resulting in a population Grouchier and surlier.

Excellent poem. Very true. All the commercialization makes people forget the true meaning of Christmas and as a result hearts become hardened.
