A slice of time in the annals of human history
Just a descript piece of time,
An interval large enough, Yet small,
An expensive piece of time,
What a time !!
New Year the completion of one global revolution
Yet the beginning of another for millennia over and over again
The measure of a change in the formation and destruction
In the progress and retrogress
In the generation and degeneration
In the decay and emergence
In the birth and death of billions and trillions
In the appearance and disappearance
Of matter from and in to nothingness
New Year 3651/4 days gone
Yet another one just began
To measure change that will happen
In another full global revolution
Around our warm, bright and beautiful sun
To give us an accounting of what will not and what will happen
To fill our statistical data of how many died and how many born
How many chromosomes fused?
And how many more discarded
How many molecules formed?
And how many more ionized.
With how many photons did we get bombarded?
And with how many neutrinos did we get passed
By how many types of waves were we reached
By how many did we get compressed?
And by what amount and how much did we get stretched.
What quantitative and qualitative change
Caused it, you, us and them
During this past one year term
And how much and what in the one to come
At the end of the New Year and the beginning of another
We will take a count of all yays, nays and the number
Till then be gay and have a very, very happy New Year.
