an eclectic, maddening display

the neighbor’s yard is an eclectic,
maddening display
his christmas lights, winking,
blink an intricate array
carols fill the winter air
piped in for baby jesus
wooden soldiers bang their drums
and bells chime with the breezes
nativities and snowmen sit
with santa and his sleigh
there’s every kind of animal

predator and prey
an endless stream of visitors
have taken up our parking
and set the pups who live nearby
constantly to barking
we hope this guy’s electric bill
won’t fiscally undo him
but as for christmas spirit
we say more power to him
