2008 Takes a Final Bow

2008 Takes a Final Bow

‘twas the last day of a man,
On the planet earth
Where under an eyelash moon,
A tortoise with elephants on his back
Raised up the tidal spoon.

And man he saw the sun go up
And then it went back down.
And man he smiled unto himself,
then frolicked in the town!

He sang to trees,
He hugged streetlights
He hummed with bees
All earth’s delights.

He danced until he
Reached the sky.
Then turned and bowed,
Bid earth goodbye.

Vaya con Dios, 2008!
Bien venidos, 2009!
