competing customers crowding,
it remained in its plastic pot till December.
For want of enough family coming for Christmas,
the mid-century punch bowl set would stay hidden
and dream of years past when it held punch by Oprah.
For want of a fine focal point for Goodwill camels to graze,
a White Christmas tree claimed that it surely would amaze.
For want of amazement the camels pled No!
Give us the purple cabbage, please,
in the dusty punch bowl.
