What News?

December 30, 2009

What news arrives to play at decade’s close?
What random suite of happenstance befalls
our so-called holidays with gladding calls
to halcyon feeling, sadness or repose?
A revelation? Or the shock and awe
of senseless war and human tragedy?
What killer wave, jihadist strategy,
or stupid luck will swipe its feline paw
at all our tidy packages and glass
menageries, set fire to the pants
of airline passengers or snuff the glow
of hapless tabloid blondes? What song of chance
coincidence or pyhrric Senate pass
inflates its sack and sets its pipe to blow?
