2008 in really bad poetry

In January we flew to "Atlan-ter,"
Our family and friends with to banter.
We met little Abbie,
My sister's new “babby
Who giggled and laughed with much candor.

February took us to Prague.
The architecture made us agog.
The buildings so old
And the air beyond cold...
Well, I wrote it all up in my blog.

On our menu for March we saw sushi -
A dish I find way too gooshy.
Dani disagreed -
On sixty bits he did feed.
A feat to be believed you must see.

April took us to CERN
A great opportunity to learn...
But our tour was in French
A word rhyming with “stench”
(No wonder our French teacher's so stern.)

Several adventures filled up our May
Month of our anniversary and birthdays.
A really great meal
Of ten courses - unreal!
Then a few days in Holland to play.

May was a hard month to beat
But June still brought us adventures quite neat.
A day trip to Lucerne
About yodeling to learn.
As we sipped some pomme-secco so sweet.

June brought excitement like none
And for a few days, stress by the ton -
Our realtor told
That our house finally sold.
And then C's parents arrived – so much fun!

In August we found ourselves smitten
By a family of small wild kittens.
One brown and one white
We caught (with some fight)
As C managed to not get all bitten.

September and we're back on vacation
Through three countries and just one train station
With my mom and dad
A great time we had.
( But I still don't eat no crustaceans.)

October, for the most part, was dull.
In our calendar, finally a lull.
Then one night our bus hit a car
Which then promptly caught “far.”
No injuries and no real damage – no bull.

Our November was busy again -
Many hours spent noveling and then
More time spent cooking
Our feast, quite good-looking.
Though turkeys here look more like hens.

December and back to the States
For Christmas on two separate dates.
We bought clothing galore
Books, camera and more.
And now we're wishing you all a “Cheers, mates!”

The style you picked is so neat
And the thoughts behind it so sweet
It was worth all the work
We all love your quirks
And the message is just quite a feat!
