The Passing Year

Flickering faces on a screen

The ending of the year

Those we shall not see again

Those we once held dear

 

Tutu dies on Boxing Day

Hero of a nation

Love your enemy he said

It will ruin his reputation

 

Hogmanay is coming soon

The Scottish take on Christmas

With Auld Lang Syne and bells to chime

And Burns to do the business

 

We mark the passing of our time

A new year will arrive

And I for one will welcome it

As I hit 75
