On January Two, I know what to do —
I’ve got resolutions ~ the year is brand new!
My diet will start and miles will be walked
I’ll dust off the weights and the scale will be shocked
I’ll stop biting my nails, stop checking my phone
Stray socks will be matched, each one with its clone;
I’ll start on the taxes and organize rooms
Spiders? Homeless! — when I’m done with my broom.
I’ll read meaty books that challenge my brain,
I’ll cut down on coffee & from sugar abstain,
I think I can do it, it’s not so absurd…
….but I’ll be ready to quit on January third.
