Resolutions Wrecked

New Year resolutions,

Like politicians’ promises.

Look-you-in-the-eye sincere,

Spoken with disingenuous intent,

Not worth the paper they’re written on.

Same old paper tigers,

Same old top three;

Lose weight;

Lose booze;

Quit smoking.

Went great on 1st January,

Until I woke up!

After last night’s party, I just can’t start now.

Just one more day!

Just finish this pack!

Then I’ll start.

A quick snifter to clear my head.

Tomorrow will do.

Better get to the sales,

I need some bigger trousers.

Rose the rampant??!!

Yeah, I gave up making resolutions years ago. Thought if I'd no will power the rest of the year, why would an extra digit in the years column change that?
