2015 Year ... In Rhyme

2015 - The Year In Rhyme

As 2015 comes to a close,

we thought it wise to mention those

Who made this year one we'll we'll recall
But forgive us if we don't name all

But let's start early with the late Yogi Berra
A cheer for this icon of his era

Soldier, champion catcher, linguist
And the future franchise Knick Porzingis!

And what about the price of gas
Ryan Seacrest, Jazz greats Marsalis


To the Queens Chambers' exec

Former energy man, Thomas Grech


To the metro area business thriller

The newly wide eyed Adrian Miller


Three areas codes now put their trust in

My ubiquitous buddy, David Gussin


The sports poetry of Walt Clyde Frazier
and if the NRA or Self driving cars don't phase ya

What of the same sex marriage clerk Kim Davis?
We Hail New York's finest, New York's bravest,

Fashion's Christian Dior,

Karl Lagerfeld, J-Lo - there's more!

This season Tommy Hilfiger's so jolly,
And so's Giambattista Valli,

Merry Business in this part of the planet

To Long Beach Chamber's Mark, Mike and Janet


And in this Presidential Stump,
There's Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump,

A republican ticket could be quite a pair
(The Donald's Veep might be his hair)

A toast to Sting, Ahmad Jamal, Chris Walken
Bah humbug to team Volkswagen

Holidays best to Google's Page and Brin
The one percent's Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Carlos Slim

This year ushered Princess Charlotte's birth
We wish joy to the long lived man of mirth

90 year old Dick Van Dyke
Pope Francis, and the Fed rate hike

We're concerned for the health of Charlie Sheen,

Lamar Odom, climate change, Joel Olstein,

Our hearts are warmed by the climate accord
We check under the tree for
Able healthcare for all of us regular folks
And escape by laughing at Louis CK's jokes

To Michael Moore and Michael Kay
The cast of Hamilton on Broadway

A loving thought a special word

To all the family Weisenberg


And admiration we exude
For Amy Schumer's posing nude

God speed is wished Jen and Justin by us
As we look away from Miley Cyrus

Triple Crown wishes to American Pharoah
Billy Joel, Springsteen, Paul and Ringo

Holiday cheer to Justin Bieber
Han Solo, Chewie, General Lia


And a hearty Deck the Hall
To Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal

And audio greetings please discern
For Mad Dog, Mike and Howard Stern

To hoops wizard Stephan Curry

Lebron, Eli Manning, Kobie

To Odell Beckham and Spike Lee

To Ashton Kutcher, Dick Vitale


We raise a glass to Taylor Swift

Let Sanders and Fiorina have no holiday rift,


a toast to Katy Perry, Uber

And to America's new friend, Cuba


A sad word for the late lion, Cecil
And to Vlad Putin, Angela Merkel


Joy to Mary Tyler Moore
and the Dark Star orchestra

Concern for countless refugees

The downhill trend of Bill Cosby


To the transformed Caitlyn Jenner

And the champion women of U.S. Soccer

Tuneful greetings to Adele,

to Skelos and speaker Silver: farewell


To Martin Skreli and Harendra Singh

I'm afraid we do not wish a thing

oh, wait, on second thought a wish we do

A  New Horizons trip to Pluto!


to Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, George Clooney
to the Mara's - Tim, and actress Rooney


To the Weinsteins, Dustin Hoffman and to

Israel's Benny Netanyahu

To the New York Rangers, Islanders, Mets

The Yankees, Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets

To Jon Hamm, to Gwyneth Paltrow

To Thrones' apparently passed on Jon Snow

A healthy happy holiday we mean a

Joyful one to the amazing Serena,


And so this hot December day

to Oprah and Doc Phil we say


To the Bushes, and Obamas

To all Papas, to all Mamas


To every living girl and boy

Our wish for peace our ode to joy
