Weird Couplets for Ending the Year

Reasonable weather will come, and it will go.
Why weather does the things it does, who can ever know?
What’s the point of running when running’s such a pain?
By running from your problems, what do you hope to gain?
A newborn calf and camel are nuzzling the same cow.
Despite its humpy little back the desert beast knows how.
A legion of angels, if I should insist,
Will stay by my side until they’re dismissed.
I have no interest, darling, in dragging out this year.
It’s almost gone—good riddance! Do I make that clear?

    Well done weird or not. I think not.

  2. Good riddance to 2019, indeed! 2020 is welcomed with cautious hope!

  3. These are really well done, Teach;
    I’m glad you didn’t over-reach.

  4. Year end thoughts are bittersweet nuances. We are anxious to start the new cycle to use the new tools we acquired in the currently aged year although we know some if the old stuff will cling for a while

    Happy Sunday


  5. Clear as the purest mountain spring. And I’m right there with this speaker. This year should probably take its last week off!

  6. Here’s hoping 2020 will be a kick-ass year!!! 🔥❤️🔥❤️

  7. LOL, that last one made me smile. It was a tough year. I also love the unexpected camel with its humpy little back. Smiles.


    Running from problems takes so much effort!

  9. I love your loyal legion of angels! May they follow you everywhere you go!

  10. Your ‘weird’ couplets make a lot of sense!

  11. Awful year…will be glad to see the back of it. Merry Christmas and may next year be a better one.

  12. These made me happy–unexpectedly hopeful lines. 🙂

  13. Hahaha thanks and a nuzul to you too. 🙂 ❤

  14. Abundantly! Wishing you a great holiday season as you enjoy a few days off from school.

    I want to get those last lazy days of doing nothing in 2019 first. A little rest may be in order before 2020
