BrewNSpew Cafe – December 31, 2018 – New Years Eve

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language 
And next year’s words await another voice.” 
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets


let the countdown begin

goin’ round again


question the bottom line

time to shine


tis time to appreciate

no time to hate


life’s arithmetic progression

seven come eleven


a cosmos bag of tricks

pick-up sticks


keep the endeavor alive

nix the nosedive


respect the swinging door

times of yore


there’s no gifting a master key

life’s a potpourri


can’t fret over who’s who

challenges, a miscue


live for the homerun

not the rerun

    • Happy New Year! I just visited your blog and shared your sympathies about the Miami Dolphins and the Miami Hurricanes. Hopefully, they will do better in 2019.
