Riddance 2007 - Poem by jerry hughes

It came toward me down at wing and heel,
dirty and unkempt, mumbling incoherently.
Instinctively I reached into my pocket for some coins.
It read my action saying, 'I don't deserve your sympathy,
it's been my fault entirely.'
'What's your name? ' I asked a bit perplexed.
'Annus Horribilis, ' it replied.

    Ah Jerry... thats such a sad way to look at the past year. I have to agree with Allie, we got rid of Howard, and did it in a rather spectacular fashion, so there is no way we can say the year was all bad. Still, lets hope 2008 is a better year yet. (Report) Reply

    Who but Jerry Hughes could have penned this title? And who but Jerry Hughes would offer the reader the wit, angst and economy of words that followed it. Come on Jerry, it wasn't that bad. We did get rid of the Howard Government, remember? love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
