Being blown up to pieces in an airplane midair,
Or spending New Year's eve alone in your rocking chair?
Dying from disease at an age very young,
Or living a long life, yet ending up nameless and unsung?
Getting laid off at work with four mouths to feed,
Or getting paid less than a friend who has not your fancy degree?
The vagaries and randomness of the world around,
Or the voices in your head that never let you sleep sound?
December 29th, 2009.
Wishes for a very happy 2010.
