The Year Twenty Ten

The year twenty ten it is drawing to a close
A good year for some one would have to suppose
But of tragic stories we did read of and hear
And for many it has been a terrible year
The earthquakes in Haiti left thousands of people dead
And the reprecussions will be felt there in the decades ahead
By thousands of people made homeless by Nature out of control
When angry of lives and of property she takes a heavy toll
Many deaths by suicide bombers in Iraq and Afghanistan
In wars that have lasted in time quite a span
In decades from now historians the year twenty ten will recall
As a good year for some but some is not all
The birthday of twenty eleven is near
And for you may it be a very good year.
