Here's a blog because NOBODY else has one!

GOODNIGHT, 2016!

(With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the year gone by…

There was a US election

And Russian hackers

And a picture of –

A Pokemon Go icon

And there were a bunch of Dems sitting-in in Congress

And too little good news (pity the year-in-review writer)

And a basket of deplorables

And a little Zika virus

And SAINT Mother Theresa

And earthquakes and shootings and Flint’s water is bad

And a noisy president-elect who was tweeting out “Sad!”

Goodnight Brexit

Goodnight John Glenn

Goodnight exploding Samsungs

Goodnight Standing Rock

And the World Series champion Cubs (well, there’s something good, anyway)

Goodnight Lemmy

Goodnight Anna Dewdney

Goodnight Edward Albee

And goodnight David Bowie

Goodnight Muhammad Ali

And goodnight Leonard Cohen

Goodnight Syria ceasefire

And goodnight Umberto Eco

Goodnight Janet Reno

And goodnight Scalia

Goodnight nobody

Goodnight life’s mush

And goodnight to the new president 

To whom we – respectfully – whisper “hush”

Goodnight stars

Goodnight air

Goodnight noises everywhere

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! MAY YOUR 2017 BE ALL YOU COULD ASK FOR!
