Passion Party #574 - The Word of the Year

Merriam Webster announced today
the word most looked up on their website this year.
It may come as a shock to know
That people with intelligence still want to grow.
For education they use their gear
allowing the computer to enter the fray.

Shock, dismay, lack of belief,
fantastic change, anguish and surprise,
the news often hit us between the eyes.
What I, for one, thought to be true
was merely "truthiness" in disguise.

The year has gone and left us here
to carry on in hope and fear
So now with all that we've had to deal
We're left with the word of the year: "Surreal"
