My New Year Resolutions

30 Dec

On New Year’s Day


By Kenn Nesbitt

On New Year’s Day a year ago,
I started off the year
by making resolutions
that were probably severe.
***
I said I’d save my money,
as this seemed so very wise.
I vowed I would improve my health.
I swore I’d exercise.
***
I stated I would do my homework
every single day.
I’d brush my teeth religiously
to ward off tooth decay.
***
I’d eat my fruits and vegetables
and keep my bedroom clean.
I’d treat my sister kindly
though she’s often very mean.
***
My resolutions lasted me
about a half a day.
I promised I would keep them
but I broke them anyway.
***
So now I’m fat and penniless.
My homework’s overdue.
My sister’s mad. My teeth are bad.
My room is messy too.
***
And yet I think I may have found
the best of all solutions,
and this year I’ve resolved
to make NO resolutions.
