Dead Soldiers of Christmas
I left around midnight and walked down a dark and silent street toward
home, and I saw a Christmas tree abandoned next to a fire hydrant.
The tree had been stripped of its decorations and lay there sadly like a
dead soldier after losing a battle. A week before it had been a kind of hero." - Riachard Brautigan.. with thank to Jarvis Cocker's radio show..
