OT:2009

Lets drink to ’09 with a good belt of wine (though whiskey may well be more fitting!) The recession was hairy, The swine flu was scary, And Oprah announced she was quitting! While we loved Lady Gaga The Octomom saga Struck many as shameless and wrong. We witnessed the rift Between Kanye and Swift, And Phelps was caught smoking a bong! When a pilot’s quick brain Saved his passenger plane On the Hudson, the tale was a thriller. Balloon boy was phony, As rubber baloney, The abs on werewolves were killer! A governor’s flame was an Argentine dame, Bringing scandal to South Carolina. There were pirate attacks, There was Goldman and Sachs, There was poisonous drywall from China!! The pres was sworn in And he flashed us a grin, While exuding his usual charms. Though some thought it shady, The stylish First Lady Asserted her right to bare arms. While Michelle was in Vogue, Sarah Palin went Rogue, And political tensions were showing. With the gathering storm Over health care reform The Tea Party movement was growing. The Hollywood crew gave us “Transformers 2”, While “up” was a true work of art. There was Bruno (a jerk!) Plus a young Captain Kirk And an overweight mall cop named Blart. Those admen on “Mad Men” Were sexy-yet-sad men, With lives full of pressure and toil. Adam Lambert came out, Leaving no shred of doubt, And who didn’t love Susan Boyle? When a huge SUV Hit a hydrant and tree, And the juiciest rumors proved true, The endorsements went winging, For that kind of swinging, Just wasn’t the Tiger we knew. And Pop lost its King, What a terrible thing, For an artist with hit after hit. There were songs and orations, With loud lamentations, For everyone knew This was It. There were others as well, Who went out, sad to tell. We saw Cronkite and Kennedy fall. Bea Arthur is gone, Ed McMahon has passed on. And Mary left Peter and Paul. With the passing of Farrah, We ended an era, And Soupy and Swayzee went too. DeLuise said goodbye, As did OxiClean guy And the soft spoken star of “kung-Fu”. Yet some news was brighter And made us feel lighter, In spite of our sorrows and peeves. There was a Google wave chat, And a keyboarding cat. There were trendy new blankets with sleeves. Though we still can’t erase All the troubles we face, From the climate to high unemployment, Let’s be of good cheer And they won’t interfere With our holiday fun and enjoyment. We’ll turn from the news To whatever we choose, Be it Lifetime or ESPN. And after a break We’ll be ready to take, The big plunge into Twenty Ten!
