The Year that Margaret Thatcher Died

In the year that Margaret Thatcher died
and Snowden showed us hidden lies
While China landed on the moon
A royal baby made us swoon
We lost Mandela, Clancy, Gandolfini
Ian Banks and Seamus Heaney
Walter’s meth-amphetamines
and typhoons rocked the Philippines
Armstrong’s cycle-cheating sin
Andy Murray’s tennis win
Miley twerked (I looked away)
The year is done – I’m sad to say.
