‘Twas the eve of the new year and all across this land
2020 had changed every women, child and man
Auld Lang Syne will be sung for family to hear
as we meet over zoom to bring in the new year.
This year brought sadness and just needs to go
but more happened than just COVID you know.
We need to speak “Moistly” trended before May
Kobe’s chopper crash we thought was a really bad day.
Murder hornets came here from the far east
a threat to our native and smaller honey bee.
A Loon vs. Bald Eagle back in the spring
the Loon won the battle, that was a cool thing.
Out in the boonies monoliths appeared
with no explanation of why they are here.
SpaceX used a Dragon to bring NASA fame
Elon Musk had a baby with a really weird name.
Asteroids and Meteors brought their show
Although we couldn’t gather to watch from below
words we didn’t recognize started to appear.
with them brought a new world of fear.
Hockey and Basketball were played in a bubble.
A small earthquake made parts of Michigan rumble.
We’ll never forget Trumps speech at four seasons.
We want a new year and these are just some of the reasons.
I came to this city and went straight to my work.
For “stirring up things” some think I’m a jerk.
Telling your stories and following my nose.
Has led me to call this wonderful city home.
With a new year upon us in just one more sleep
I’m sure I can for our whole news team speak.
When we wish you a Happy New Year, may it be happy and bright.
From Saultonline, don’t drink and drive and have a great night!
