The New Year is here,
We're full of good cheer,
Except for the snow,
Oh man, did it blow,
It was a real blizzard,
Or so I heard,
Storm of the century, storm of the year,
Storm of the millenium, that's what I hear,
Which brings to mind,
If you'd be so kind,
What pray do we call,
The year which we fall,
Perhaps double aught,
The name will be sought,
Or maybe called zero,
That's how we'll go,
But my choice, the one that I'll sing,
Praise be it's here, the year of the nothing.


ok.. give me a break...  we're snowed in here at the 'stute and there isn't much to do today.

Ye olde plow be rusting.

But "nothing" still brings
Us such precious things -
Friendships we hold dear
Survive in this new year...
Giving us all hope
And helping us to cope
With winter's bleak chills
And all of those bills
That weren't left behind
With ole ninety-nine!

Cute! And yes, the wonderful year of the nothing after 2 years of stress over it!
And if at all possible, please do keep the snow there!

Granted, the term
"New Millennium", we bought
but to have this new decade
referred to as "Ought"
is more "kewl phraseology" than I can endure
Though it's not "pc" or "current" or "hip"
I think we should call this
the decade of Zip.


Liked your poem!


Dear LadyClaire
