Ode to 2017

 

321454-2018-Happy-New-Year

Ah, 2017, were you jealous or mediocre

Sheeple unleashed the role of the joker

Capricious ideas lost in a masquerade

But redefined in a game of charades

Those who believe in a soda pop world

Their aha moment lost in a mercurial twirl

Sidesteppers have a paper doll facade

Their selfies litter humanity with fraud

Do we make bad decisions or good stories

Shush the bullies before they have their glory

  We gotta watch what’s goin down

Everyone keep their ear to the ground

 The dotted line wants its missing dot

Wanting life a la mode is asking a lot

As we embark on the year – 2018

What may unfold remains to be seen

Oh, and before we dip our toe

Let’s follow our cues before the show

Buh bye, 2017 it’s time to go

    2017 seemed to usher in the Age of the Boor. Yet, look at the downfall of the boorish Mugabe, the shaking of the cage of fools, in Iran, and the return to sanity in Alabama.

      I like your observation. I feel 2017 was it’s time to speak out for those who have been afraid to. Perhaps, not all were legit victims but getting the point across was imperative.
