This Year's Language Goes From Bad to Verse
With greetings, dear readers, I welcome you here
To ponder the terms that annoyed us this year.
Our demons were legion; they covered a range,
From "vaping" to "trade wars" to world "climate change."
We strived and we struggled to find any exit
From "opioid crisis," "harassment" and "Brexit."
And weather disasters sent chills through our bones,
Infernos and flooding and -- eek! -- "bomb cyclones."
A "yield curve inversion" caused markets to drop,
While "common sense gun laws" continued to flop.
