(With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the year gone by,

There was the inauguration of the 45th US President

And fidget spinners

And a picture of

The sun blocked by the moon

And three sets of women changed the world: Wonder Woman, #MeToo, the 13th Doctor (Who)

And ten Earth-like planets, 40 light years away.

And hurricanes blew things away

And Obamacare wasn’t repealed

And Cub Scouts chose to allow girls

And Comey and Gorsuch and North Korean  in a nuclear rush

And assault victims demanded no more saying “hush”.

Goodnight, Rickles

Goodnight, Adam West

Goodnight, Gene Cernan who jumped over the moon

Goodnight, Tom Petty

And gun victims gone too soon

Goodnight, wild fires

Goodnight, Chuck Barris

Goodnight, Mary Tyler Moore

And goodnight, ‘net, neutral no more

Goodnight, Judge Wapner

And goodnight, Hugh Hefner

Goodnight, Ringling Brothers

And all those who help others.

Goodnight, Dick Gregory.

And goodnight, original Godzilla, master of the Tokyo crush

Goodnight, nobody.

Goodnight, Keystone Pipeline oil gush

And goodnight to the powerful, white men whispering “hush”.

Goodnight, Northern White Rhino, we fear

Goodnight, air.

Goodnight, noises everywhere.




(In the style of “Goodnight, Moon”…With apologies to Margaret Wise Brown)

In the year gone by

There was an awakened Force

And an international climate deal

And a picture of –

 New Horizons jumping over Pluto

 And there were many presidential candidates standing at podiums

 And two ex-TV hosts – Letterman and Stewart

And the Cubs shoulda won

 And new Caitlyn Jenner

And Greece debt defaulted

 And a U.S. pope visit, same sex marriage and a bowl full of new Campbell’s soup – not mush

 And Chinese couples who want more kids no longer have to say “hush”

Goodnight Roddy Piper

 Goodnight Wes Craven

Goodnight flying Confederate flags

Goodnight Doctorow

And the Iran nuclear deal

Goodnight B.B. King

Goodnight Cecil the lion

Goodnight shootings

 And goodnight riots

 Goodnight friend Cuba

And goodnight Playboy nudes

 Goodnight Yogi Berra

 And goodnight Saint Theresa

Goodnight Mickey Rooney

 And goodnight Grace Lee Whitney

 Goodnight nobody

 Goodnight thinking like mush

And goodnight to old grump Trump

Calling for Muslim bums rush

Goodnight stars

Goodnight air

Goodnight noises everywhere


 SEE YOU IN 2016!
