Rhyme and Reason: December 31, 2012

GOOD RIDDANCE, BUT NOW WHAT?

Come children, gather round my knee;
Something is about to be.

Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.

The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.

Hark, it’s midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!

Ogden Nash, Candy Is Dandy – The Best of Ogden Nash

Happy new year! Or, you know, take cover!
