Farewell to Two-O-One-One;
Let us count our blessings and wants,
As we sing the “Old Lang Syne”,
To this full year’s departing sign.
Firstly, thanks to have survived;
Our future needs to be revived.
We have maintained our good health,
And have not squandered all our wealth.
We still have our wits around;
Our family safely surround;
Our blessed friends remain good friends,
Despite any contrary trends.
Welcome to Two-O-One-Two!
May it bring you good tidings, too.
Let last year’s unpleasantness
Be replaced with joyful goodness.
The birth of this brand new year,
Heralds the coming of things dear
To you and your family,
Living in perfect harmony!
May your wishes come to past,
To bless your days with this year’s pass.
My humble prayer, this is:
May it happen with actual ease!
