Hump Day Happy New Year Haiku


We all shall admit
That the old year is over
Need desk calendar.

The new year is here
Time marches on your torso
Heads up: we're older.

Russia in crisis
Ukraine in decline, I fear
Europe next in line

Intruders visit
Just stroll into the White House
Thanks, Secret Service

Pharrell sang "Happy"
That Ebola was crappy
Bieber delinquent

Rodman's Korea
They are so glad to see ya
Stay there, idiot

Independence, Scots?
Kilt that idea quickly
Back to complaining

Terrorists out there
Your internet isn't safe
Sony can tell you

Bye, Afghanistan
Our soldiers are coming home
Silent phone? It's us

NFL, you say?
Sure it's not a baseball game?
Lots of real hitters

Ice bucket chillers
ALS is in the news
No one will stay dry

Opportunities
Perhaps travel or romance?
(Don't fly Asian Air)

Plans for the next year
See you on the Flipside, peeps
Wish you all the best

  2. HAIKU!!! (Gesundheit! Oh boy, I must be catching a cold!)

    Good morning, dear Cherdo!

    What a great idea this is for a yearender, composing a Haiku poem which touches on the highlights and lowlights of 2014. I can picture Adam Sandler's Opera Man singing it on SNL.

    I feel very fortunate to have crossed paths with you in 2014. Over the months I have watched The Flipside grow into a bustling hub of communication. I couldn't be happier for you. You have become one of the greatest friends I ever had, dear Cherdo, and for that I am grateful. Once again I wish you and your family a safe, happy, healthy and prosperous 2015. God bless!

      Thank you for your friendship and consistent support of my blog blabbery. The thing that makes the Flipside fun is friends and our alternate reality, ha ha. Here's to 2015! May you have the best year possible, full of health and happiness. Happy, happy new year!

  6. Excellent. I might avoid air travel completely. It won't be too difficult because I can't afford to go anywhere. Happy New Year!

    Love,
