Greetings,
I was waiting in between flights today and this came to me so I thought I would share.
  
An Ode To 2010
  
A year of years was this 2010
I mean it was interesting down to the end
The year started with a boom and a earthqake
The poor people of Haiti it was more than they could take
The rains and waters were not kind in Tennessee
Mud slides and floods beyond what they eyes could see
March brought on Maddness of a different kind
There were days it was so cold in Florida the sun did not shine
A group shouting and rant about how goverment should be
Saw the world a bit different and called themeselves Tea
The champion of golf saw his personal life and game crumble
He was busy with some kitty cats who caused him to stumble
From Cleveland to Miami the King flew the coop
Chasing a ring down in south Florida, which is where he will now hoop
The comeback kid  an man named Vick, with a throwing arm that’s hot
The folks up Philly were afraid to give him a shot
The elections brought some sweeping changes locally and in DC
It will be a real dramedy of sorts to watch and see
The economy is still slow and joblessness is sad
Housing foreclosed this is the worst in 40 years we have had
Healthcare was a area of major debate
For or against, it was worth the wait.
Our troops are still off fighting in senseless combat
Let’s pray for their return from Afganistan and Iraq
The social media arena really got large
Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter operating with no user charge
The country of Chile and their trapped 68 miners
Offer the world a lesson in humilty and to quit our whining
The gulf region was hit hard by BP’s oil spill mess
It was hard watching the wildlife and mankind being put to the test
The snow storms of Chirstmas left many at airports with flights stalled out
The stranded not having happy holidays missing family and friends caused them to pout.
So now we are here at the last day of 2010
Be happy, celebrate as we usher 2011 in!
