Poem For The New Year 2010 - Poem by Alexander Shaumyan

Alas, the sleazebags of tomorrow
Are our icons of today,
And every year brings forth more sorrow
With promises of better days.

Enough of Bushes and Obama,
Enough of change, enough of wars,
Enough of Clinton blowjob dramas,
Enough of Cheney, Biden, Gore.

I bid farewell to Michael Jackson,
There'll never be the King of Pop-
Half saint, half a child molester,
Who'd make us boogie till we drop.

And, Tiger Woods, your sordid story
Of secret sexual vagaries,
Has somehow dimmed the shining glory
Of all your golfing victories.

Good bye, old year, for I feel tired
Of all the bullshit that went on,
You were extinguished like the fire
That kept the faithful hanging on.

Good bye, old year, of overblown
And hollow words of yesterday,
I greet new year with eyes aglow-
May it bring bright and lively days.
