Happy New Year everyone. I wish you all the best.
Hope you had a peaceful season; caught up on some rest.
Husband's back to work again; the boys are back in school.
Told them that I'd miss them (Momma didn't raise a fool.)
But, there is a part of me that's felt so out of touch;
Didn't follow world affairs or watch the news so much.
Listened to the BBC and so I caught the gist.
Details and the nuance were the things I kinda missed.
Dr. Seussilitis re-emerges with free time.
I'm just getting up to speed about which news to rhyme;
So, I beg your patience, please, as I shift in to gear.
Promise to get better as we enter this New Year.
