To continue on through chaos
Once this year comes to close
I won't bother you with details
No , we don't need more of those

Suffice it to say we've seen them
There were plenty of hardships and errors
Extraordinary blunders
And moments of sheer terror

Disasters un-imagined
Extreme calamities
Most things that couldn't be any worse
Beat the odds by three

Raging floods and drought and famine
And pestilence galore
Continually assailed us
Exhausted we felt no more

Listed , each manner of torment
In excruciating detail
For our entertainment
Each night at six without fail

On horizon of the morrow
There lies hope awaiting sight
Held inviolate from sorrow
Eager to put wrong to right

Rejoice in it's affirmation
Strength unbounded lies within
Drink full this sweet libation
Once again the " News " begins

You've got it right in this, Moose.
Mighty words I say.

Severn,
The inspiration for this in part came from one of Michael's posts, I guess that got me going on the subject( not that it takes much)
And then I read one of Mike's son's . Somewhere in the process this was concieved , and from there it pretty much wrote itself .Thanks for the reply.
