2008, in review

2008 has come and gone
yet still we watch with TVs on
Paris, Lauren, and the like,
while veejays yap into their mike.
MTV leads us astray
while still, we sit and greet the day
with thoughts not of Bush or bombs or books,
but of which new celebrity pic was took
by some poor slob searching for a hook.

While Mumbai hotels are blown apart
by radicals who preach their form as art,
we look to celebs who shine with glee
over Suri, Zahara, and Bronx Mowgli.
Nevermind Fritzel who in Austria hid
seven kids, his daughter's! from what he did
From such events we should have shook,
Were we not caught by Palin's look
and demands for Hil Clinton to cook.

Obama's voice called out for change
and among the people there was a range,
of celebrities like Will.I.Am
who sought to lead our attention from glam.
He won, he did it, they have their man
so why has Harper not yet got the can?
For leading us to certain debt
While Dion and Layton lost their bet
For now, the proroguement is what we get.
