I dashed this off for a parquette who wished me HNY and thought it fit to share with y'all.
Note the rhyme scheme of abbaaccddc, a defining characteristic of the décima espinela form from Spain and dating from 1591.
2012 is almost done;
my calendar’s in the trash.
I’ll attend a midnite bash
and I’ll have my New Year’s fun.
Once again, around the sun
our poor planet makes its way
and as we start off I say
(and you know just what I mean)
let’s hope that 2013
brings more than it takes away.
