This year - Scillian
The past year ended in burlesque
champagne oerflowing to the New.
Yet what next comes could be grotesque
if not for ancient scholars who
plot heaven's pathways at their desks.
Their charts of celestial gases
reveal the course of future time
find a path which safely passes
past Thesaurus and forced rhyme
bringing Quintain to the masses.
note - Iambic (mostly) tetrameter rather than pentameter
but Quintain (Scillian) was the nearest form
