Hello January

Hello January Dr. James E. Martin ©January, 2014 Hello January, you’ve finally arrived Another year we have all survived. Tell me please, if you can What will be? - How should I plan? Do you see more of the status quo? Will more freedom we soon know? Will our economy settle down? Will there be reason to wear a frown? If only these things and much, much more We could from you successfully implore! If we could in the future see What would be our destiny? I sit here in my solitude And wonder if you’ll ever my thoughts intrude. I anxiously hope that I’ll not long wait Before my concerns you’ll contemplate!

I love this DrJim - the questions reflect that which we aspire to and that which we wish to see done away with. Very well written!
