Year In Review

It’s that time of year again

When I take out

My trusted pen

And write of old

And write of new

And speak my thoughts

Year in review

To look at things

Some sad, some jolly

Some filled with thought

Some filled with folly

And so Bashevkin
Rhymes his views
On what the world
Did claim was news
 
I guess we’ll start

With Time’s big thing

Occupying

Everything

 

I guess Time is

So occupied

They’re making them

So bona-fide

 

Because in our

Great US nation

Many have lost

Their occupation!

 

Of course the world

The praise did sing

When occupied

With Arab Spring!

 

There was no springtime

In the air

At least around the world

And here!

 

For Hurricanes

And tsunamis

Left havoc in their path

Newsmen said it’s nature

And we said it’s G-d’s wrath

 

And heroes tried

And heroes died

And Klal Yisroel mourned

As more yesomim cried

 

A tragedy in Brooklyn

It shook us to the core

But we reacted valiantly

And pray we hear no more

 

All sorts of fellows running

A presidential race

Everyday

A new one claims

He is in first place

 

Rebellions in the Arab world

Our president did praise

I guess he just don’t

Understand

They’ll never change their ways

 

They’re screaming in Tunisia

Rebelling in Egypt

And back here in America

The Occupiers flipped

 

They drove out bums in Libya

Over in Yemen too

They’ll do the same in Syria

And then they’ll blame the Jew!

 

And Abbas tried to get his state

And vote in the UN

And the whole world tried to

Join his cause

What’s new, my friend, again?

 

Goodbye tyrant Gaddafi

And Kim you died too late

Your son will now wear

Your “songlasses”

Oy! To Korea’s fate

 

And yes!

They got Osama

It sure took them a while

The Prez, I’m sure, said,

“Take him out!

‘Cause I don’t want a trial!”

 

And terrorists around the world

Are cheering that they won

They got 1,000 monsters back

And Israel got their son

 

And Europe’s banks are failing

The US, they’ll soon fleece

I worry that the slide won’t stop

For it’s covered in Greece

 

The prince he did get married

For all the world to see

I hope his shidduch’s better

Than that of his daddy

 

And Iran’s going “nuclear”

And Bibi is still snubbed

Obama teleprompts his lines

And Perry’s lines were flubbed

 

And politicians

Come and go

I hope Congress is cleaner

Welcome, Mr. Turner

And goodbye Mr. Weiner

 

Technology has boomed again

But lost its favorite son

In Berries versus fruits, they say

The Apple has won!

 

I won’t go into

Our world

I’ll wait ‘til our New Year

But pen these words

In worry

While all the nations cheer!

 

They sing and revel

And then get drunk

As they drop a ball

But we know that

The world’s real fate

Depends upon us all!

 

So our plea

As they shall drink

Please save us in these times

And bring Your light

Unto the world

And I’ll make happy rhymes!
