What a time it was to be alive

When 2016 came and flew right by

2016 came and everything seemed fine

Until upon my emotions it began to dine

It began to become dark and tore me apart

And those that I treasured dearly in my heart

First was my dog, just but a little ball of fluff

But old age caught on to him, and he went down rough

Next was my great grandmother, old as an oak

But she too fell asleep... and never awoke

2016 seemed to change everything around me

Whether it be the places I go or the people I see

Farewell 2016, you relentless piece of torture

Here's to 2017, let's make it a scorcher!
