New Year Bug

Frogonomics; Chapter 104


Happy New Year? Bah Humbug!!!

I’m in a funk.

I thought that by keeping

Germs happy and drunk


Enough so, I’d sidestep

A stimulus of ills;

Instead, I’m in bed

Without syrup and pills!


Fiscal Cliff Lemmings

And Elves early-retired

Will share in a plethora

Of shelves deeply mired


In yesteryear’s fads:

Fake fur and faux pearls.

Passing pestilence and debt

On our little boys and girls…
