So what exactly happened
And who exactly cares

Standing minding your own business
And you find you yourself just there

No one ask that you arrive there
No one offered up a chair

You fall asleep at bedtime
All carefully well prepared

And awakened in the morning
You are barely even there.

A couple pots of coffee
Your eyes now open wide

The old year up and went
The new year arrived as sent

So what exactly happened
And who exactly cares

You may find yourself well satisfied
Or just pissed off as hell

But a new year has come along
Can you really even tell

You have high hopes or so you say
As you are programed to do

The same old crap is still sitting there
Not much has changed with you

But then again you were not asked
You weren’t given your just do

The new year has been started
And will we make it through

So what exactly happened
And who exactly cares

    One more time around the sun,
    I hope I’m not at the wrong end of a gun.

    “Another day, another dime!”

    “Is that all there is?”

    “Same as it ever was!”

    “The same old shit, just a different year!”

    “Bah Humbug!”

    I see no glass whatsoever, not alone a glass half full or half empty!

    There, does this help any, Tube?

    Tube–Wow! Great poem! I’ll ad my poor entry to the mix.

    –2017 was a very bad year…
    –a year of discouragement…
    –invective and fear…
    –The forces of darkness…
    –spread across the land…
    –all tied in…
    –with the Donald Trump brand…
    –So where do we go..
    — in 2018?….
    –How do we wipe…
    –the national slate clean?…
    –Could a Democratic House…
    –Impeach the Orange man…
    –Could the forces of justice…
    –get rid of the Klan?…
    –could America wake up…
    –And come to its senses?…
    –Or will we continue to build…
    –more immigrant proof fences?..
    –We stand at a crossroads…
    –Which road do we take?…
    –It’s important to choose…
    –There’s so much at stake…
    –“Make America great again”..
    –Says the Orange haired fool…
    –While all the while being…
    –Wall Street’s tool…
    –So who will save us?…
    –Who will come to our aid?…
    –Or will we be just like the people of Jonestown…
    –And drink Trump’s Kool Aid…

    Thanks Tube-coming from you it’s a great compliment. Do you ever get the feeling that everyone on your blog-all 100% of us-are more rational and articulate than Trump?
