Here's a toast to this year, almost done.
Did the Swine Flu fill your heart with fear?
When Barack Obama won the race
and the Nobel Peace Prize, did you cheer?
Susan Boyle sang; did tears wet your face?
Did you mourn the tragic King of Pop?
Chuckle at the snowball-fighters' fun,
while frowning at the pistol-toting cop?
Did you laugh at Tiger's silly fail?
Did the Credit Crunch give you a scare?
Hope Balloon Boy's dad would go to jail?
Feel good after Slumdog Millionaire?
