A Wish for 2016

Happy New Year, one and all!
May your genoise never fall,
May your kitties never cower,
May your bamboo never flower
(When it does, you know, it dies),
And may you fully realize
The insubstantiality
Of the line ‘tween you and me,
And may compassion thus result
Quite naturally, so you’ll exult
In every other being’s love.
And may you never lose a glove.
