Wait For It…!

Listen, merchants, I’m not joking.
Stub out those Yule logs you’re smoking.
It’s not yet Election Day
So put those Santa hats away!

You tell me it’s the market’s bidding,
I say quit it. I’m not kidding!
Red and green’s a traffic light
Not Christmas colors…yet. All right?

Halloween has barely passed.
Don’t rush Thanksgiving by so fast!
Those turkeys dread this time of year
For months. Let them enjoy their fear!

Just four more weeks, that’s all I ask,
And then ‘neath holly boughs I’ll bask
And buy into your jolly fun.
But please, wait ’till December one.
