The Fraught Noughties

Great joy began another thousand years
when candles blazed for peace around the world,
but fires of hatred flamed as planes were hurled
at modern towers raising smoke and tears.
Attacks and threats of worse incensed the fears
to war of shock and awe. A piper skirled
alone at soldiers’ graves. The West unfurled
their flags to Eastern frowns and peoples’ cheers.
The swing of change then swept across the price
of oil to spoil the rhythm set on lives,
by failing banks and markets. Business hives
went bust. Recession’s muddle played with dice
revealing subtle crimes of fraud and vice.
And yet, a humble person’s joy survives.

The Vacuous Decade of Roaring Excess and Consumption.:D
But that makes it sound like the 90's all over again. and the 60's, and the 20's, ah well every decade minus a major depression or war.

I'm calling the next decade the twoomegas. That's "two" and the plural of "omega" joined together. And instead of '20' we'll replace the 0 with an omega sign, which I don't have for typing. Obviously for 'twoomega' the gap between the tail of the 2 will join onto the beginning of the omega symbol.

I like this because until somebody bothers to draw it and upload an image, you won't find it on the Internet.
