he Holy Family figurines
That sit on my TV
Would really look spectacular
With more than just those three.
I wander down the crowded aisles
Of the department store
In search of decorations past
I know I've seen before.
But halfway through my fruitless search,
I straighten with a frown―
Where have all the stables gone?
I fear they're all torn down…
Undaunted, I resumed the quest
To fill my Christmas scene
But only spotted Santa Claus
Among the evergreen.
"Merry Christmas" was obscured
By "Happy Holiday"―
Where have all the wise men gone?
I fear they've lost their way…
One more aisle of red and green
Between me and the door,
Yet I've not found a single thing
That I came shopping for.
I left the store with nothing new,
Both puzzled and dismayed―
Where have all the shepherds gone?
I fear their flocks have strayed…
