A Mardi Gras Tree

I think that I
shall never see...
Anything as cool
as a Mardi Gras tree...

They grow in New Orleans
nearly every Spring...
As the bands start marching
in full swing...

The beads are flung
from near and far...
As the revelers stumble
from bar to bar...

The tourists take selfies
with the trees behind...
On every block
these trees they find...

The Mardi Gras tree
is such a beautiful sight...
As the party continues
late into the night...

So whenever you visit New Orleans and you find a Mardi Gras tree...
Make sure you post a selfie
for all of us to see...
