'Twas the Night Before New Year's

‘Twas the night before New Year’s
And all through the world
Many ideas were stirring
And many dreams swirled

Resolutions made in batches
By both beggars and kings
some expections find matches
others -forgotton things

Somewhere a warlord is arming
Planning for battles nonstop
Elsewhere a family is farming
Expecting a robust bumper crop

But the warlord’s target will be ready
And his invasion will flop
Elsewhere rain will fall too steady
And the fields will turn to slop

Somewhere a writer in foreclosure
Will have his family’s suitcases all zipped
And just as he loses composure
Hollywood will option his script

Every great plan one could think
Is still fair game for failing
The ship ‘God himself could not sink’
Sank on its very first sailing

Yet I offer this truth, a mere kernal
You ought still plan long and plan well
For hope springs eternal
Always drink from that well

But never bet your whole money belt
Only a fool sticks out his neck
you have only the cards you are dealt
God holds the deck

  6. Thanks Jav! I gotta say I'm seeing results just one hour in and it's pretty impressive. I only started in late October and I'm within striking distance of 2000 total pageviews before the ball drops tomorrow night. I feel very confident I'll hit it by then. I'm very glad to have found you.

  7. Reliable sources confirm that while Snookie will NOT drop in the ball, she WILL get PUNCHED in the face at the stroke of midnight -and then drop to the floor, as an inspiration to all to drop bad habits.

  8. Well done, NAG (Not Actually God). Happy New Year!
